The Bears looked to come back from the tough loss to Malone last week, knowing they would have to work hard if they wanted to beat them. They did work hard to win one set, but still lost the match. The scores were 23-25, 15-25, and 25-22.
The first set got off to a strong start for the Bears. It was very close all the way through. With the lead going back and forth between the teams it could go either way. A few service errors and mistakes by the Bears allowed Malone to edge them out with the 23-25 loss.
The second set was a bit of a different story. The Bears kept it close until about half way through. Then Malone went on a serving run which the Bears could not break. Unfortunately leading to the 15-25 loss for Canton.
Although the Bears had already lost the game they still fought hard and won the third set. It was again a back and forth set, both teams with a lead at different points. The Bears pulled it out with the 25-22 win.
Stat leaders were Josie Gabriel with 9 service points. Laurel Whittier with 1 kill, 2 assists, and 2 points served. Katie Metcalf with 4 kills and 1 point served. Emma Logan had 2 assists and served up 4 points.
The JV Bears have a busy week coming up playing on Tuesday, October 12th in Massena, Thursday, October 14th at Tupper Lake, and on Friday a doubleheader at home against Gouverneur.
