Knights fall to Faith Christian

DIXON, Ill. — Coach Tabitha Fullan called Unity Christian’s loss to Faith Christian on Thursday “an off game.”

“They started the first game of the set pretty strong,” she said, “then they lost their momentum toward the end of the first game, and throughout the second game.”

Faith swept the Knights, 25-18, 25-22, bringing Unity’s record to 7-2. JoLynn Frederick led the Knights offensively with two kills. Jaime Kammerer added a kill and an ace, while two players — Natlie Hirl and Maria Striley — each tallied three aces to lead the team.

Cardinals comes back

RIVERDALE, Ill. — Erie rallied after dropping a tight first set to take down Riverdale in three sets Thursday. Savannah Mettler was a huge reason why.

Mettler, a sophomore, totaled a match-high 17 kills as the Cardinals defeated the Rams 23-25, 25-19, 25-23. Peyton Rus added 10 kills. Both players helped setter Mary Chapman to a productive night with 24 assists.

Rus also stepped up defensively with 14 digs. Serving-wise, the Cardinals got a nice boost from Rachel Cobert, who racked up four aces.
