Freshman Riley Miller defeated Fargo South junior Owen Duncan, 7-5, 1-6, 6-4, on the road Thursday, an 8-1 Hi-Liner loss, in Valley Cityâs final league tuneup before a do-or-die Regional match.
âWe finished eighth in the EDC [1-7 EDC, 1-9 overall], which means that we will host the play-in match this coming Monday at 4:30 p.m. against Wahpeton [0-8 EDC, 0-10 overall],â Hi-Liner head coach Matt Nielson said. âWinnerâs team season continues on Thursday at Regionals. Loserâs team season is done, but top seven will still play the individual tournament next Friday and Saturday in Grand Forks.â
Name something that Hi-Liner volleyball has plenty of.
Wahpetonâs two-set comeback made it a family feud on Thursdayâs Parents Night at the Hi-Liner Activities Center, but the fifth-set survey said âheartâ as Valley City never trailed for the 15-10 win and the 3-2 (25-10, 25-9, 22-25, 19-25, 15-10) match to avoid becoming the Huskiesâ first Eastern Dakota Conference victims.
Valley City led 9-2 in the opening set for the 25-10 edge, and 10-1 in the second on the way to a 25-9 count.
