ST. CROIX FALLS—The St. Croix Saints volleyballs squad defeated the Siren Dragons last Tuesday night by a 3-0 margin. The game scores were 25-9, 25-23 and 25-16.
“We were making some basic mistakes, like serving,” said Dragon coach Kristin Kosloski. “We played well in game two, it's what we're capable of doing. We've just got to clean things up.”
St. Croix jumped off to a 5-0 lead before the Dragons got their first point on a short service attempt. The margin was extended to 12-3 when Siren got a kill. The Dragons got no closer than 12 after that time.
In game two, the Dragons fell behind 3-0 before a long return gained them a point. From there, Siren knotted the game at four on a short return by the Saints.
Siren got a kill to keep the score tied, this time at seven, and later a tap by Abby Kosloski knotted the game at 12.
The Saints moved up to a 17-14 margin, but Siren battled back to tie it at 17 and go ahead to 20-17.
St. Croix forced some Siren errors, coming back to tie the game at 23. A Saint kill and a wide return ended the second game.
Game three saw St. Croix move out to a 10-2 advantage, but the Dragons couldn't get any momentum going, getting no closer than seven at 18-11. The Saints took game three.
The Dragons will have hosted Frederic on Tuesday, will go to Grantsburg on Thursday, and will host Luck next Tuesday. All varsity games begin at 7:15 p.m.
