Earlham holds off Wolverines in five
GREENFIELD — Serving twice for match point, and then losing that fourth set, proved too much to overcome for the Nodaway Valley volleyball team in the Class 2A regional opener here Tuesday night against Earlham.
Earlham improved to 14-5 for the season with its second five-set victory of the season over Nodaway Valley (10-18), 22-25, 25-20, 21-25, 27-25, 15-9. The win pushes the Cardinals to the Region 4 quarterfinals Oct. 29 at Des Moines Christian.
Nodaway Valley won the first and third sets Tuesday, and was on the brink twice of finishing it off in the fourth set, serving with leads of 24-23 and 25-24. The first time a good save in the back row sparked the Cardinals, and the second time junior Alex Potzner had one of her match-high 20 kills to extend the action.
