CANFIELD OH- South Range found themselves hosting an old foe on Thursday as they played United with a sectional title on the line. With one win separating the two team’s records it promised to be a tight competitive match. It definitely lived up to the hype as the Raiders came out on top in a  close four set victory (23-25 28-26 25-9 25-21).

The first two sets of the night were decided by two points. They traded blows back and forth as Tori Tschappatt and Izzy Lamparty both were able to find rhythm for their respective sides. United came out on top of set 1 25-23, while the Raiders finally ended a long set 2 28-26.

Credit to the Eagles for bringing back their toughness in set 4, it would have been easy to pack it in. That’s not what United is about. They fought like crazy to stay in set 4. Lamparty and Ally Sauerwein both proved to be too much for the Eagles to handle out of the middle. The Raiders pulled out the 25-21 win to seal the match.
