Dutch beat county rival KHS 3-1

Pella — Knoxville and Pella High were tied at a game one entering game three of the Little Hawkeye Conference volleyball showdown last week in Knoxville.

The Lady Dutch won a hotly contested game three 25-23 and went on to win the match with a win in game four.

The final score in favor of the Dutch was 25-21, 15-25, 25-23, 25-18.

“We are getting more consistent play out of our team,” stated Pella Coach Catie Brand.

She added, “We had a breakdown in game two, but we kept attacking and became more aggressive in game three.”

Panther Coach Eric Fee was disappointed in the outcome and replied, “Pella played great they were more prepared and more aggressive than we were. I just didn’t have our girls prepared and ready to play.”

The win elevated the Dutch to 12-14 overall and to 2-2 in the Little Hawkeye Conference.

The Panthers fell to 9-19 for the season and to 1-4 in the LHC.

Jessica Holterhaus tied the match at 20-20 and the Dutch never trailed again in the game.

In the fourth and final game of the evening the Panthers held their final lead of the night at 15-14 before the Dutch scored 11 of the next 14 points of the contest.

Kills by Kylie Roslien and Bogaard ended the match.

Panther leaders were Chambray Daugherty with 19 kills and Cunningham and Cheyenne Jones each with seven.
