Weston-McEwen takes out Enterprise in three sets


ENTERPRISE - The Weston-McEwen TigerScots took down Enterprise in Blue Mountain Conference play Thursday, defeating the Outlaws in three games, 25-15, 25-13 and 25-23.

In game one, the TigerScots led from the beginning and did not look back. Game two was more even, with each team trading points before Weston-McEwen pulled away for the big win, but putting the series away in game three was a struggle.

The TigerScots were 3-4 points behind until they managed to finally tie the game at 21. The Outlaws traded two more points to again tie the game at 23 before Weston-McEwen finally scored the last two points to win.

"What really keyed it (the comeback), was we settled down and started executing good offensive plays," coach Shawn White said. "It really came down to if executing when it got tight, and I was really pleased with how we executed when it got down to the end of the match."

Senior Morgan Entze was all over the stat sheet for the match, scoring 12 digs along with 22 assists and eight kills. Sophomore Molly von Borstel contributed 10 digs and nine kills, Katy West had eight kills and three blocks, Taryn Coffman had eight digs and nine assists.

Junior McKayla Carlin scored an ace on 15-of-16 service from behind the stripe and had 15 digs as well.

Many of the TigerScots were playing their first varsity league victory ever.

"We are very young, and not only that, but a lot of the older kids are playing in new positions or first year on varsity," White said. "We've been playing together really well, this is our first match with everyone there.

"We've been missing people every week, it's just been a scramble," White said. "The young ladies have done a tremendous job working through that, and now we are starting to see that fruit."

The TigerScots will face both Stanfield and Heppner in a double-header at Heppner Saturday, the first game is scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m.
