VICTOR ADVANCES: Girls volleyball headed to state semi after defeating Frontier

The Victor Blue Devils girls volleyball team sent Frontier packing Friday night, and with it secured its biggest season win to date, reserving a seat in the Class AA semi-final round in the state tournament.  Victor defeated Section VI’s representative in straight sets 3-0, however it wasn’t as easy as some sweeps can be.

Victor and Frontier went in to extra play in the first set, with Victor securing the win 26-24.  While the second set didn’t need the extra play, it did come down to the wire, with the Blue Devils coming out with a 25-23 set win.  The third set proved to be toughest, with Frontier jumping out ahead early 11-8 before Victor drew to a 11-11 tie and then ahead 12-11.  Frontier came thundering back, pulling out to a 20-17 lead before a Blue Devil timeout.  Victor’s timeout proved to be a momentum changing chapter in the match, as the Blue Devils flipped the script on Frontier and led 24-21 when Frontier called a final timeout.  The timeout only prolonged the inevitable, and Victor scored the lone remaining point to secure the 25-21 third set victory.

The Blue Devils will now head to Glens Falls for the semi-finals next weekend.  Pool play for the semi-finals begin next Saturday morning at 8:30 am, with opening ceremonies starting at 7:45 am.
