MURRAY — Their respective records wouldn’t indicate a competitive situation, but 3-19 Mount Ayr put up a fight as state-ranked Murray (16-1) got past the Raiderettes Monday night, 26-24, 25-27, 25-13, 25-21.

The Raiderettes are coached by Tori Braby, daughter of Murray coach Jerry Shields.

“We gave Murray a run for their money,” Mount Ayr coach Tori Braby said. “We left everything on the floor and I was very proud of the effort our girls gave the entire game. I was coaching against my dad, so any trick he has ever taught me, we threw at them to throw off Murray’s game.”

Braby said a crucial substitution error when the score was 24-22 in the first game changed the score to 23-23, and Murray went on to win 26-24.

“We knew it was important to make Murray scramble on every opportunity and I think we did a good job of that,” Braby said. “In the end, Murray came out on top.”

Paige Daughton played an outstanding match for Mount Ayr with 19 kills, two blocks, 17-17 serving, 10 digs and 23-35 serve receive.

Kelcie Shields had seven kills and nine blocks. Brook Rychnovsky had a team-high 12 digs. Blair Glendenning served 12-13 with two aces, Macy Larsen served 16-18 with 13 assists and Allie Shields served 14-14. Hannah Glendenning had 12 setting assists.

For Murray, Hannah Barber finished a busy night with 27 kills and 14 digs with 17-19 serve receive statistics. Cheyanne Ashby had eight kills and three blocks. Madison Gonseth served 17-19 with three aces. Kate Patton had 40 setting assists and served 16-17 with two aces.

“We looked like we hadn’t played for one week,” coach Shields said. “But give Mount Ayr, they came ready to play. They played very scrappy tonight.”
