Despite being swept in three sets, the Sully Buttes Chargers went out with guns blazing in the first and third sets, but still dropped a 25-17, 25-12, and 25-23 match against the 13-3 Potter County Battlers Tuesday night in Gettysburg.
The Chargers slipped to 7-11 on the season, and has tough matches ahead against Philip, Timber Lake and Highmore Harrold, and can’t afford to lose much more ground. But it was obvious Sully Buttes has learned their lessons in previous matches, and with the addition of sophomore Stevie Wittler after back surgery this past summer, the Chargers showed they have the ingredients, but still need the right rhythm.
The Battlers showed why they’re topped ranked in Region 2B, with crisp net play, passing, and lack of errors in the match. Sully Buttes had 10 service errors, to Potter County’s’ three.
The Chargers now travel to Philip Thursday against the 17-2 Lady Scotties, while Potter County is at home against Herreid Selby Area October 5th.
