The Lady Chargers fell behind early in the first set at 14-4, but fought back to outscore Goshen 25-13 to come up with a first set victory, on their way to a three set win.
â€śIt was nice to see my girls come from behind and rally for the win,â€ť began Ancilla coach Lana Singleton. â€śI felt it was a very nice and evenly distributed attack effort and solid defense from several players that contributed to the comeback victory in game one.â€ť
Jordan Hopper led the Lady Charger attack with seven kills. Danielle Burge topped all Ancilla defenders with 18 digs. Erika Combs and Brooke Mathias also finished with double-digit dig totals, compiling 11 and 10 respectively. Demi Schrader assisted on 25 of Ancillaâ€™s 31 kills.
