Game Recap

On Saturday, Whitmore Lake Middle School played host to Livingston Christian School, Melvindale, St. Francis and Livingston Classical Academy for their season ending volleyball tournament. Whitmore Lake opened pool play against Livingston Classical Academy. Although the Trojans weren’t playing bad, you could tell the girls had just slipped out of their PJ’s for the morning match and couldn’t pull away from the academy. Whitmore Lake held an 11 – 10 lead until LCA found a little spark and pulled ahead. Down 12 – 16, Whitmore Lake called a time out to regroup and brought Joey Wilson off the bench for her defense. The wakeup call and substitution worked and behind the serving of Adrianna Canter with a serve out rotation and Lauren Pricey, Whitmore Lake rolled off eight straight points to game point before LCA could get the serve back at 20 – 17. Whitmore Lake finished the set 21 – 17 with a side out. Again, in the second set, Whitmore Lake was still a little drowsy, but managed to hold a small lead throughout the set before winning with an identical score of 21 – 17 to open up 2 – 0 record in pool play. Next up, class A Melvindale. With their warm-up match over, Whitmore Lake was ready to roll and knocked out the first set 21 – 11. In the second set, the Trojans asserted their dominance, only giving up two points. Lily Wilson started the set off with five points on her serve out rotation. Melvindale picked up their first point with a side out but Whitmore Lake took the ball right back. Pricey added four more points for a 10 – 1 lead before the Cardinals got their second point with another side out. Whitmore Lake never gave the ball back and scored the final 11 points in a row with Goose Francis and Peaches Cloutier each serving five in a row for a 21 – 2 victory and to remain undefeated in pool play at 4 – 0. Whitmore Lake’s third match would be against the other undefeated team, Livingston Christian School. Early, LCS took a small lead until Pricey served four in a row putting the Trojans up one, 8 – 7. Whitmore Lake opened the gap to 19 – 16, two points from pay dirt, but a missed serve gave the Falcons new life. After LCS tied it at 19, Whitmore Lake finally got the crucial side out and just needed one for the win. Another missed serve tied the set at 20. The Trojans defense dug in with another side out and again needed just one serve good serve for the win. Peaches stepped to the line and hammered the Trojans home for the win 22 – 20, handing the Falcons their first loss of the season. The loss took the wind from beneath the Falcon’s wings and Whitmore Lake seized the opportunity. Canter put together another serve out rotation and another point by Pricey put the Trojans up 7 – 2. After Canter’s second turn at the serving line Whitmore Lake was up 16 – 12. Pricey then took the team to 19 again before another dropped serve, again giving LCS another chance. The Falcons made it 16 – 19. After a Whitmore Lake side out, Goose was in position to seal the set, but another missed serve on the penultimate point gave LCS one more opportunity. Whitmore Lake clipped the Falcon’s wings and grabbed the side out for the win, 21 – 17 to hand LCS another loss and remain undefeated at 6 – 0 in pool play. The win guaranteed Whitmore Lake the number one seed coming out of pool play and a spot in the championship match. The Trojans had a loftier goal though and wanted remain undefeated in pool play, but Whitmore Lake’s final match was against St. Francis who had already beat the Trojans twice during the season. Whitmore Lake would sit two matches before their final match against St. Francis, and the long layover proved costly. After Whitmore Lake took a 4 – 2 lead, St. Francis scored 10 points in a row for a 12 – 5 lead. Whitmore Lake added another point, but St. Francis added six more on their next serve to close in on the set at 18 – 6. Whitmore Lake got two more side outs before the Mustangs rode away 21 – 8 giving Whitmore Lake their first loss of the tournament. The loss angered the Trojans and the girls flipped the switch and came out swinging in the second set. After L. Wilson and Canter finished serving in the first two rotations, Whitmore Lake was already up 9 – 2. Whitmore Lake’s offense kept punching and the stingy defense kept the Mustangs at bay. Whitmore Lake quickly knocked the Mustangs out 21 – 11 to split the match and finish pool play as the number one seed with a 7 – 1 record. In the championship match Whitmore Lake would face Livingston Christian in the best two of three match. The Trojans would again have a two game layover before playing for the championship. Whitmore Lake learned from their mistake earlier and would not come out rusty again. Whitmore Lake and LCS were tied at five but then the Falcon’s ace server was up and hung five in a row on the Trojans. LCS increased their lead to 17 – 9, when Whitmore Lake called a timeout to make some adjustments. After the timeout Canter added another serve out rotation to her stats. Pricey added one more point and the battle was on with Whitmore Lake only down 16 – 18. A couple of quick side outs by Whitmore Lake put the set at 18 – 19 then Peaches served two more points for a 20 – 19 lead. LCS tied it at 20 with a side out, but couldn’t score on their own serve. After Whitmore Lake’s side out, J. Wilson added two more, but with the Trojans knocking at the door of a one set lead at 23 – 20, but the Falcons weren’t giving up. LCS took the serve back but couldn’t hold onto it. With the set at game point, 24 – 21, Pokey Taylor stepped in to pinch serve. Taylor did her job, but the defense could back her up and LCS had one more breath of life left. A bad Falcon serve put the ball into the net and Whitmore Lake put the important first set of the championship under their belt; 25 – 22. One down, one to go and the Trojans were primed to fight. The Trojan offense lit up early behind Adriana’s fourth serve out rotation of the day, and got out to a quick 8 – 2 lead. A couple of rotations later, Whitmore Lake still had the lead, 9 – 5 but it was LCS’s ace server’s turn to serve. The Trojans were ready for her this time and held her to only one point. With Whitmore Lake was up 13 – 9, the Trojans increased their lead to 17 – 10 after Canter dropped in a couple of more aces. From there, Whitmore Lake struggled to hold serve and LCS crept back into the match only down three at 17 – 20. Whitmore Lake got a side out and J. Wilson’s serve added another point, but the Trojans continued to have difficulty closing out the set. After side outs by each team, the score was Whitmore Lake 24, LCS 19. This time Whitmore Lake had their ace server in Canter at the line. Canter nailed a beautiful serve. LCS tried to send the ball back to the Trojans, but put it into the net instead, giving Whitmore Lake a 25 – 19 victory and the tournament championship. Whitmore Lake played with great team work, from the play on the court, to players coming in off the bench in key situations and others supporting the team from the bench. Enough can’t be said how hard and well Whitmore Lake played putting everything they had learned throughout the season together at the most important time. The girls also showed tremendous resiliency and mental toughness throughout the day, coming back from deficits many times and playing with the lead in pressure situations. J. Wilson played incredible defense all day often keeping the Trojans in the matches while Canter’s serving gave Whitmore Lake a huge advantage. The win in the championship puts the eighth grade Trojans’ final record at 2 – 10 (1 – 5 TCC).
