It was a long road trip home for Enterprise Friday night as after the Bulldogs won the match in three straight games 20-25,20-25 and 17-25.
EHS coach Tammy Crawford said that her team played fairly well but their serving didn't make the road trip with them.
Crawford complimented team members Stephanie McCready, Kallie Hadden, Chelsie Noland and Kayla Stoffel for their defensive efforts in all of the games. Crawford also commended Maddie Smith for a good night hitting. "Nyssa was good but we should have beaten them," Crawford said.
The EHS squad fair much better at the Wallowa Invitational on Saturday by defeating Joseph 25-23, 25-16, Powder Valley 26-24, 25-22 and Huntington 25-21, 25-21. Wallowa was their only loss for the day with the Cougs winning 25-22 and 25-16.
"Wallowa was our only loss but we beat them earlier in the season," Crawford said. "We had too many mistakes serving and made some poor choices offensively."
Several girls served 100% for the day including Hadden, Smith and Jennifer McCready. "Maddie really did a good job defensively and sparked the team digging up spike after spike in our win over Powder Valley," Crawford said.
Stoffel headed up the kills department with 16 to her credit some off of tip balls. "She has a lot of finesse," Crawford said. Hadden and Smith had nine kills each followed by Noland and Jessie Morgan with five apiece.
Starter Hadden and Morgan sat out the game against Huntington because Crawford felt that her team could beat Huntington without them plus she wanted to see how some of the other girls would perform.
"Winning three of our four matches on Saturday was a real confidence builder," Crawford said.
"We need to carry over our momentum to our game against Imbler on Friday," she added.
Net action is scheduled to start at 4 p.m.
