Showing improvement in areas of their game, the Sully Buttes Chargers let one slip away, as they fell 25-15, 20-25, 25-22 and 25-15 to Class A Mobridge Pollock Thursday night in Onida.
The Chargers would make a run, only to commit an unforced error to give the advantage to the veteran Tigers, and didn’t have enough to sustain rallies and build momentum. Once again service errors hurt Sully Buttes, as the Chargers committed 13, to Mobridge Pollocks’ eight.
Lydia Hill once again led the way in kills for the Chargers, totaling 13, and senior Tailynne Bradford was honored before the match for achieving 1000 assists for her career. Mobridge Pollock was led in kills by Emma Keller and Charley Henderson, both hitting five.
The loss drops the Chargers to 8-18, with two regular season matches left. Next week Sully Buttes travels to Herreid to take on the Herreid Selby Area Lions, and Friday night a home match against Hitchcock Tulare.
The Tigers are now 18-6, and will face Milbank and Groton Area Saturday at the Milbank Tournament.
