After a competitive, back and forth first set, the Miller Rustlers settled in, and played sound volleyball the rest of the way, and came out with a 25-19, 25-10, 25-10 dominating performance Thursday night over Sully Buttes at the Armory in Miller.
The veteran Rustlers used solid defense, and the whole court to score offensively in the second and third sets. Leading the way in kills was 6’0″ senior Ally Mullaney, who ended the night with 16 kills. Jaden Werdel-another senior- added seven, and solid setting by fellow senior Tyra Gates shut the Chargers down.
Sully Buttes was led by Lydia Hill, with seven kills, and the front row combo of Hill and Saige Heath worked the blocking game all night, but were limited in their success. The Chargers couldn’t generate an attack game all night long, thanks to the Rustlers defensive dominance, and back row passing.
The Chargers slip to 2-4 on the season, and now travel to Ipswich Tuesday for a match against the Tigers. The Rustlers head to Warner Tuesday to take on the top ranked Monarchs.
