At TroyThe match at Troy saw the Trojans dominate from the start.
In the first game it appeared the Pirates might get shut out as Troy opened the match with 17 straight points before Lockett scored a kill to end the run.
When you’re down by 17 before you get a chance to serve, you’re not likely to win the game. Prairie wound up scoring 5 in the game, all on sideouts as they had no serving points and didn’t even make a full rotation at the service line.
The second game started better. Troy scored the first point then Prairie scored on a missed serve and with Lockett serving a tip by Forsmann for the Pirates’ first lead of the night.
Troy took back the lead but Prairie got 3 straight kills from Martinez for a 6-4 lead. Troy tied it and a kill by Wemhoff gave them one final lead at 7-6 before Troy took control, outscoring Prairie 8-19 the rest of the game.
Prairie never led in the third game as Troy jumped out to a 0-4 lead and never looked back.
A highlight of the third game was when Forsmann blocked one of Troy superstar outside hitter Morgan Blazzard’s hard-hit spikes.
Martinez led Prairie in kills with 7 plus 1 assist. Schlader had 3 kills, 5 assists and 1 ace. Lockett had 3 kills and 2 aces. Forsmann had 2 kills including the aforementioned block. Wemhoff had 2 kills and 8 assists. Geis had a kill and Klapprich had an assist.
Prairie is now 4-2 on the season and in league play.
In the JV match Prairie won the first game 25-21 then lost the next two, 12-25, 8-15.
