The Matador boys volleyball team took yet another victory, after their recent tournament, against Mark Keppel High School on April 16th. The Matadors won 3-0, proving their dominance once more.
The game started off with the Matadors spiking a powerful strike to take the first point of the game. The Matadors continued to lead, forcing the Aztecs to call timeout to prevent the flow the Matadors had. However the loss was inevitable, leaving the Matadors with a set score of 25-16 and a nine point lead.
The Aztecs came back with as much force. Using faster plays and performing less errors, they led the first half of the second set with a four point lead. However, the Matadors slowly caught up, evening the score at 10-10. As if baffled by the Matadors’ comeback, the Aztecs slowly began to lose points, letting the Matadors easily take the set with the set score 25-14.
The third set was filled with unpredictable turns of events from both teams through the whole game. Aztec’s number three player, the libero, was hit in the face by David Gonzales’ intense spike not once, but twice. Though the actions were not on purpose, it was humorous to the crowd, who cheered on the fallen Aztec as he stood up each time after getting hit. Regardless, the Matadors took the third set with the score of 25-13, winning all three sets and leaving the gym with a victory in their hands.
