Indians scrap past Northeast

GOOSE LAKE — Once again, Camanche senior Libby Schnoor compiled a monster match statistically, putting away 14 of her 30 hitting attempts for kills Tuesday night. But this time, Schnoor’s output was countered by a foe across the net.

Northeast outside Addie Oberman seemed to find kills from any spot on the court en route to her 15-kill performance. She started Set 2 with a cross-court rip so hard it appeared parallel to the net. During another stretch in the same set, Oberman was the Rebels’ biggest offensive weapon — from the back row — racking up another four kills from behind the 10-foot line.

Together, Schnoor and Oberman were the ying to the other’s yang, with both players trading kills all night to fuel their respective teams and effectively canceling each other out.

“I really tried my best to just put it all out there and leave it on the floor,” Oberman said.

The difference, then, came from the other 10 players on the court. Where the Indians seemed to dig up everything Northeast threw at them, the Rebels were forced to play catchup most of the night because of their own unforced errors.

“I didn’t think we were mentally ready for that,” Rebels coach Brenda McKone said. “I’ll certainly take blame for that. ... (Afterward) we talked about being mentally ready for the game and wanting the ball.”

Camanche got the 3-0 sweep — 25-19, 25-20, 25-18 — but it was a much closer contest than the score showed, according to Indians coach Josh Davis.

“To win in three was kind of fortunate,” Davis said. “I think we were on the right end of a couple of tough breaks that they had. It could’ve easily gone five (sets).”

The first 20 points of the match saw both teams play to eight ties, with Oberman and Schnoor getting into early rhythms at two kills apiece. When Camanche setter Kylie Vogel took the service line at 10-10, the Indians began to pull away and the Rebels unraveled with miscues.
