Elmwood-Murdock had 13 ace blocks in a 25-23, 25-20, 25-12 victory against Palmyra in the subdistrict final in Waverly. The C-2 ninth-ranked Knights had five blocks in the third set to put the game away.
"We really turned the match around with ace blocks," Elmwood-Murdock coach Peter Vavak said. "We felt like if we could block them, we could win the match. We beat them at the net and it's a great win for us."
LINCOLN – Elmwood-Murdock earned third place in the East Central Nebraska Conference volleyball tournament Saturday afternoon with a dramatic comeback against one of the top teams in the league.
Elmwood-Murdock rallied from a two-game deficit to defeat Palmyra 20-25, 15-25, 25-20, 25-23, 15-12 in the third-place match. The comeback helped ease the sting of a five-game loss to Mead in the tournament semifinals earlier in the day at Southeast Community College-Lincoln.
Papillion-LaVista swept Class B's new top team Lincoln Pius X in in the finals of the Lincoln Northeast Tournament, while former Class B No. 1 Gretna was defeated for the first time this season. Earlier last week, Kearney Catholic was defeated by Grand Island Central Catholic, switching up the rankings in C1. D1 BDS lost to Class C2 Blue Hill, but remains atop in D1 as does Bertrand in D2 and Lutheran High Northeast in C2 in this week’s Oct. 3 NebVolleyball/Jones Insurance Agency, Inc. Rankings for each classification.
