The Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles volleyball squad upped its game, giving Desert Christian a run for its money in Thursdayâ€™s road game.
The Eagles fell in four, 18-25, 25-22, 15-25, 21-25, against the Knights, who are tied at 8-1 for Desert Mountain League champion with Boron. â€śWe played much better against Desert Christian than we did last Saturday,â€ť said coach Mel Joseph. â€śOur intensity allowed us to give a better effort. We had our chances but made too many errors in our offensive execution.â€ť
The Eaglesâ€™ final two games are critical to gain a CIF playoff spot. Lone Pine is currently battling Mammoth for a fourth playoff spot. The Huskies meet the Knights this weekend, with their final game against Vasquez. Mammoth and Vasquez have met four times in pre-season and league play. Vasquez has logged two wins, a tie and a loss to Mammoth.
Lone Pine will have to avenge an earlier loss to the Boron Bobcats Monday, the Eaglesâ€™ Senior Night. The Eagles meet Mammoth in their final game Wednesday, hoping for a repeat of their 3-1 win earlier this season.
