On Friday, September 18, the Tulalip Heritage Lady Hawks hosted the Eagles of Highland Christian at the Francy Sheldon gymnasium. It was the second game of the 2015-2106 volleyball season and second home game for the Lady Hawks. Coming off a 0-3 match defeat at the hands of the Lopez Island Lobos in their home opener, the Lady Hawks were looking to capitalize on their extra days of practice.

The Lady Hawks started out hot as they jumped out to a 3-0 point lead in the 1st game, but the tide was quickly turned as they would go on to drop the game 12-25.

In the 2nd game, the Lady Hawks once again started out playing very good team ball and communicating with each other. This resulted in an 8-4 point lead before the Knights turned the heat on and took a 21-12 lead. The Lady Hawks dug deep and behind some key aces they managed to battle back and close their deficit to only 3 points, down 18-21. The Lady Hawks’ surge made the Knights take a timeout to collect themselves. Following the timeout, the Lady Hawks were unable to match the intensity of the Knights and lost the 2nd game 19-25.

The lack of intensity continued into the 3rd game for the Lady Hawks and they lost 14-25, resulting in a 0-3 sweep.
