Volleyball: Lady Chiefs dig deep, fend off Lady Sharks

nmbvol-3After allowing Myrtle Beach to rally for a win in a first-place showdown on Tuesday, the North Myrtle Beach volleyball team almost fell victim to a strong comeback bid by host St. James on Thursday.

After winning the first two sets, the Lady Chiefs appeared to be in their way to an easy sweep. But the Lady Sharks picked up their defense and dug themselves out of the hole to win the next two sets by 25-23, 25-23 scores to force a deciding fifth set.

Both teams went back and forth before St. James went up 13-10. With their backs against the wall, the Lady Chiefs were able to even the score at 14-14. The two teams went back and forth before Kayla Henley’s kill made it 17-16. North Myrtle Beach then managed to get a block for the final point to secure the win.

Henley led the Lady Chiefs with 16 Kills, Maggie Hash had 10 and Maddie Roy had nine. Raegan Matney had 42 assists.

The Lady Chiefs (14-9 overall, 4-1 region) are at Socastee on Monday.

Natalie Benkandil had 17 assists and 11 service points, Kristiasha Myers made 13 kills, Lauren DiMauro and Kathryn Hollingsworth had four aces apiece, and Tess Edwards had nine service points and two aces.

Myrtle Beach gets a much-needed break before hosting region opponent St. James on Tuesday.
