Knights Take Down Palomar in Five Sets

10/12/2012

Sophomore Tessa Butterfield led the Knights with 21 kills, freshman Imani Griffin added 13 kills, and freshman Elemy Yeme recorded 25 digs, as the Knights defeated Palomar 3-2 (16-25, 25-23, 25-21, 16-25, 15-10) at home on Friday night.

in the opening set the Knights were even with Palomar at 14-14, but the Comets closed it out with an 11-2 run to win, 25-16.

The second set was tighter than the first as the teams were tied up at 21-21, but this time it was the Knights who pulled away. A kill by Griffin gave the Knights the lead at 22-21 and Butterfield put the set away with a kill of her own as the Knights won, 25-23.

SDCC jumped out to a 6-1 lead in the third set, but Palomar battled back to level the score at 16-16. The Knights looked like they were going to pull away after going up 20-17, but Palomar came right back again to tie it at 21-21. Back-to-back kills, however, by Jasmine Wong gave the Knights the lead for good and the Knights ended the set with a 4-0 run to win, 25-21.

In the fourth set it was the Knights who fell behind 6-1, but they closed the gap and got within a point at 13-14. Palomar, however, went on an 11-3 run the rest of the way to win, 25-16.

The fifth set was tied at 3-3 when Butterfield recorded three straight kills to start a 7-0 run for the Knights. Palomar did not get any closer than four points and City went on to take the set, 15-10, and the match, 3-2.

The victory improved the Knights overall record to 5-5 and PCAC record to 2-2.
