THOMAS â€” For the second time in the past week the Snake River Panthers and the Shelley Russets collided on the volleyball court for a good old fashioned slugfest and for the second time in the past week it was the two time defending state champion Panthers who emerged victorious with a thrilling five game victory 21-25, 25-22, 20-25, 26-24 and 15-9.
It was a southern match all evening as all five games were won by the team playing on the south end of the court, including the five and final game which witnessed the Russets taking a quick 7-3 lead before the Panthers came roaring back with a 12-2 run to close out the match with the 15-9 fifth game victory.
"I hate the hole that we dug and I really don't know why we have to make it so difficult on ourselves," Snake River head coach Shelli VanOrden said. "Shelley are a very good, well coached team though and we feel lucky to get the win."
