BISMARCK (NewsDakota.com) – Not many teams beat Century in volleyball and Jamestown had a chance to sweep the season series from the Patriots heading into their second meeting. Century was able to stave off the Jays and pick up a five-set win (25-22, 19-25, 23-25, 25-21, 17-15).
The two teams are now essentially tied atop the WDA standings with one loss apiece. If they end the season tied, Jamestown would own the tiebreaker via their 3-0 win back in September.
In the final set, each team held a lead of at least three and had one match point. Century jumped out leading 7-3, but the Jays answered to take a 12-9 lead. Patriots outside hitter Megan Anderson was the difference in the match as she was able to lead the charge in some crucial stretches with 6’4″ Lauren Ware off the floor.
She did it again in the final set pounding home some big points to keep her team alive.
Jamestown (26-4, 10-1) has a handful of trips to the Capital City remaining as they will play at Mandan, Legacy and St. Mary’s between now and October 26th. Their next home match is October 18th against Williston.
