OFA had its moments in Monday nights 21-15, 25-12, 19-25, 12-25, NAC interdivisional girls volleyball loss to Malone.
Moments which Coach Sue McLean felt would help the Lady Devils (4-1 West, 8-3) on Wednesday as they host Potsdam (5-0 West) looking to reverse their lone NAC West Division.
Malone really blocked up the middle with Rachel Lamica who is a definite college level player and that is where we like to attack, said McLean.
But we rallied from a 16-4 deficit in the first game and we had a season high 28 digs. That showed that we worked very hard against a high caliber team like Malone.
Following the Potsdam match the Devis will host a day-long tournament in Monday. Entering the tournament are: Canton, Madrid-Waddington, Northern Adirondack, Edwards-Knox and Peru.
The tournament will begin at 9 a.m. continue throughout the day.
In OFA action at away venues OFA utilized its depth to gain a 49-45 swimming victory over St. Lawrence Central and Canton relied on its depth to down OFA 3-0 in NAC Central Soccer.

The foursome of Perrigo, Jillian Hogle, Hunter Shaver and Taylor Briggs who paced the 200 freestyle relay and Chelsea Montroy won the 100 freestyle.

BEARS CONTROL SOCCER
With four starters out, the depth of the Canton Girls Soccer needed its depth to check in against OFA.
It did just that according to Bear Coach Greg Kiah.
We needed our bench needed to step up. They did and we played very well, said Kiah whose team improved to 8-3, 6-3 and dropped OFA 2-9-0, 2-8-0.
Emma Pinckney got the Bears on the board in the 11th minute scoring from Johanna Shea. Bailey Hurlbutt tallied just a minute later unassisted.
In the second half, Megan Rosser scored from Sam Mace in the 47th minute to round out the offensive sport for goalie
Katie Clemmer made three saves in the shutout.
Jordan Marcellus made seven saves for OFA.
Canton JVs 3 - OFA 0: We played well today and had some great opportunities, but Canton was hustling all over the field, said OFA Coach Renee Tebo after the Bears scored in each half.
In the second half we were fighting a strong wind and the ball floated and took some strange bounces. Canton passed well and scored twice in the second half.
Coach Tebo cited Kelsey Pinker ton on defense, Ali Moore and Ashley Barr in the midfield, and Kiera Johnson and Sarah Barr on offense as the leaders of the OFA field effort and Alicia Garcia for a strong six-save effort in goal.
