ST. JOHN — Pomeroy won its third set with St. John-Endicott Tuesday in St. John, but couldn’t over come a two-set deficit as the Pirates fell, 25-18, 25-18, 23-25 and 25-22, to the Eagles.
“(We) need to improve our serving, and we need to show more mental toughness in tough situations,” Pomeroy coach Bruce Crossfield wrote in an e-mail. “(We) had to make some lineup adjustments due to injuries. Players made a good effort.”
Mackie Monahan led Pomeroy hitters with 16 kills. Savannah Ruark blocked seven balls and Emma Woodland and Ruark have five aces each.
