PENTWATER — Pentwater had to battle back from an 0-2 deficit to turn back Walkerville in five sets (22-25, 24-26, 25-19, 25-21, 15-4) in a Western Michigan D League match at home Thursday night.
“We played a pretty tough game tonight,” Falcons coach Kelly Pascavis said. “The girls were pumped and ready to go, we just couldn’t execute what we needed to do the first two sets. We couldn’t seem to get anything started, or keep our momentum up. Then, it clicked. The girls have been working hard, and it’s all new for them. I changed things up.”
Pentwater junior Samantha Schaefer led the way for the Falcons with 18 service points, including 11 aces, five kills and one block while being a digging machine according to Pascavis.
Sophomore setter Charlie Swanger served for 17 points with three aces, had three kills and 14 set assists.
Falcon senior Jocelyn Richison added 10 service points with one ace, added two kills and had two blocks while stepping up with some big digs and great passes.
Mackenna Hasil, a first-year player, put up seven points with five aces, had three kills and one block. Addison Bringdahl added four service points with an ace and also was all over the floor making some great digs and passes.
Marissa Sayles contributed one service point with an ace and added three spike kills while Aubrie Adams added one service point and one kill.
Pentwater is at home again next Tuesday against Brethren in another conference match.
