Lady Spartans battle Tigers for league title

Print Article

   SPIRIT LAKE — Taryn Eldore had 35 assists and four aces for the Spartans in a 27-25, 23-25, 28-26, 22-25, 15-5 win over the Tigers in a early battle for first place in the Intermountain League. “It was a hard fought match,” Priest River coach Kati Bodecker said. “All of the games were close. Timberlake played great defense and made us earn every point.” Melissa Trost recorded 19 kills, Karly Douglas 21 digs and Beth Bykerk two blocks for the Spartans (14-6, 4-0 IML), who can clinch the Intermountain League title with a win over the Tigers at home on Thursday. Priest River plays Timberlake at 4 p.m. and sticks around for another match with Orofino at 7 p.m. The Tigers and Maniacs play at 5:30 p.m.

   Tied at two games a piece, Priest River came through in the clutch and outscored Timberlake 15-5 in the final game to pick up the victory.

   “We were definitely inconsistent at times, but I thought that we always finished strong,” Bodecker said. “A great quality of a successful team is finding a way to win and that’s what we do. Even when we are struggling we find a way to win.”

   Sydnie Malloy had 20 assists, six digs and seven aces and Jenna Hoffman five aces for Timberlake (8-8, 3-1 IML).

   The Lady Spartans lost their first head-to-head match of the season Monday night when they played at Lakeside High School.

   The host Knights won 25-16, 25-14, 25-17.

   Taryn  Eldore had 11 assists and four blocks, Karly Douglas six digs, and Jill Weimer, Beth Bykerk and Melissa Trost each recorded three kills in the loss for Priest River.
