The night started off looking good for the Braves at home, as they took the first set by a tally of 25-22. After the first set, the Blue Devils never looked back winning the second set 25-13, the third set 25-15, and the fourth set 25-22.
Chris Butera, head coach of the Blue Devils volleyball team, believed his team got off to a bit of a rough start, but rebounded nicely.
“We started out kind of slow,” Butera said. “Our girls might have been taken Avon for granted a little bit based on what they done over the past couple of years. They have a good coach and a lot of good players and they came to play in the first game and kind of caught us on our heels, but we regrouped. Our biggest players stepped up our setter Maggie Wheeler, our middle hitter Aubrie Johnsen, and outside hitter Rachel Nicholls all kind of stepped up and made plays when we needed to and I think our offense just outlasted their defense, which was great, Avon had great defense all night.”
Geneseo will travel back home to take on Keshequa on Friday, with action starting at 4:30. Avon will remain home and host Warsaw on Friday, with game time slated for 4:30.
