A very good win for the Rainbow Warriors tonight. it ties the series at 38-38
one of the keys was early, in Set 1, where they opened with Timmer serving. in men’s volleyball you only have 6 subs and can only re-enter once. The lineup allowed them to have Timmer serve twice.
They also went without a libero a couple of times at the end. Averill, who got beat up all night when being stepped on under the net, had a couple of key digs. Taking nothing away from Kanetake, who had a career-high 15 digs.
What was more impressive was how Hawaii put the really bad calls against them behind them and played through. One net was so bad that Averill was standing, with his arms straight up and the net hit him in the chest.
Not sure what Olsen’s injury is. He left after Set 2 and didn’t return.
Sedore 24 kills, Averill 12. both career highs. Zarkovic came on at the end with key kills, finished with 11.
UH 7 aces, 21 SEs (argh). The Beach 1 ace, 14 SEs. Crabb 22-5-49, 10 digs. Greogry 10 kills, 12 digs. UH did a really good job on Satterfield 10-5-32, 12 digs. Ammerman 10 kills.
The Beach with a 13-9.5 edge in blocks. UH 2-1 blocks in Set 5.
Have a good weekend.
