MASSENA - Bouncing back and 25-23 provided two themes for OFAs five-game win at Massena in NAC interdivision girls volleyball action on Tuesday.
Our girls played the best match I have seen them play, in Chateaugay on Friday, but they lost. That match really helped them tonight, said OFA Coach Sue McLean.
Tonight they were mentally strong and didnt beat themselves up after a mistake. Massena was a good defensive team and we had to patient and find the holes
That mental toughness played a key role as the Devils overcame deficits of 9-2 and 17-10 in the first game before prevailing 25-23. OFA went on to win 25-23, 25-23, 14-25, 19-25, 25-23 and capped the win by rallying from an 18-14 deficit in game five.
Paige Perrys serving sparked the first game comeback and she went to post a well-rounded 14-point outing with four aces, six kills and six digs. Taylor Fisher delivered her second straight 20-kill match striking for 21 kills, 13 points and five aces and Sky Hoover netted eight kills with four digs.
