Pateros leads 1B volleyball standings

OMAK – Okanogan squeezed past Omak 25-13, 22-25, 25-14 and 26-24 in a Caribou Trail League volleyball match Oct. 8.

The victory lifted the Bulldogs (2-1 league, 6-2 overall) into second place in the CTL while Omak (1-1, 7-1) suffered its first loss of the season.

“Great match by both teams,” Okanogan coach Ray Cross said. “We didn’t play our best match of the year, but it’s always a big task to win on the road against a good team like Omak.”

The Bulldogs looked unstoppable in the first set, opening up an early 13-3 lead before Omak closed late.

The Pioneers kept the momentum going into the second set, keeping about a three-point lead in the final half of the set.

“We had a very rough start,” said Omak coach Shannon O’Dell of the first set. “The girls started getting more focused toward the end of the first set, but the gap was too big at that point in that set.

“They went into the second set with a new attitude and played well resulting in a win there. However, we had a roller coaster night and with teams in our league this year we can’t do that.”

Okanogan took control of the third set early.

But the fourth set went back and forth as Omak tried to force a fifth and deciding set

The Bulldogs instead won in extra points.

“The girls played really well as a team,” said Cross. “Everyone stepped up at certain points of the match.”

Okanogan stats: Becca Hawley 14 kills; Reyna Rivera nine kills; Laynee Hubbard six serving aces.

Oroville (0-7) is at Okanogan (6-2) at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, for a non-league match.

“We need to be more focused and play more controlled,” O’Dell said. “We have a good team and a great amount of potential to have a very good season still, but that night wasn’t our night.”

Omak stats: Sidney Nicholas 10 kills, 100 percent serving; Trinity Fjellman 20 digs, six kills, two blocks, one ace; Hannah Schneider seven kills, three blocks; Tyler Worden 26 set assists, two kills, one block.

Cashmere (0-3 league, 2-7 overall) is at Omak (1-1, 7-1) for a CTL match on Tuesday.

Brewster jumped on the scoreboard first.

“That’s when the Lady Tigers woke up and started playing their game,” said Norris. We controlled the second half with the ball on their side most of the game. It was an extremely physical match.”

“My defensive line was phenomenal and worked together while staying in our formation,” said Norris of defenders Jacie Deebach, Jareli Pardo, Jennifer Cosino and Lupita Cosino. Keeper Melanie Morales also had a great game.”

The Tigers, which swept the other seven teams in the league, opens the second half with Oroville (0-5 league, 0-6 overall) at Tonasket (7-0, 7-1-1) at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15.

“So far, so good,” said Norris. “We still have to maintain composure and keep the intensity up.”

The big match this month comes Tuesday, Oct. 22, with Tonasket hosting second-place Liberty Bell (4-1, 5-3).

“That will be a very good game,” said Norris. “Liberty Bell has a great team so it should be a really good matchup.”
