When the Breds and Birds get together for anything you can expect a full house, tonight was no different, and in front of a PACKED house in the Fort the visiting Breds (7-0) win in 3 straight to remain undefeated.
Big tip of the cap to both student sections that showed up in full force.
- this one was nip n tuck until the Breds took a 16-13 lead, however the Birds battled back to take a 21-18 advantage. It looked like the Birds were going to escape as they held a 24-22 lead with the serve, but NewCath scores 4 straight for the 26-24 win.
- Highlands races out to a 12-8 lead, NewCath comes back to go ahead 14-13. Birds go up 18-15, but the Breds tie things up at 18's. Highlands goes up 21-19, Breds then go up 23-21, Birds tie things at 23's.....but NewCath gets the next 2 points to win 25-23.
- Breds race out to leads of 13-5 and 19-8, but the Birds get the score to 19-13 when NewCath calls a timeout to regroup. The Breds stop the bleeding and grab a 22-17 lead, but Highlands goes on another run and get it to 23-19 and NewCath calls another TO. The timeout strategy works and the Breds go on to win 25-20.
This was the first time this season seeing the Breds and I was very impressed with the play of Fr. Madison McCloskey, young lady can get up off the floor. Also, have to give a "shout-out" to my niece Maddie "sticks" Kramer, she is improving nicely.........and if you've never seen Mikah Freepon play, you are missing out.
