The Northwestern Tigers volleyball team defeated the South Shore Cardinals 3-2 (19-25, 25-12, 25-27, 25-21, 15-4) Tuesday night in Maple.
The match went back-and-forth until the Tigers won the fifth game 15-4.
Statistical leaders for Northwestern included Lexi Janigo, with eight kills and 11 digs; Cheyenne Johnson, seven kills and nine ace serves; Daisy Mack, 26 assists; and Alyssa Frick, 16 digs.
For South Shore, Megan Gustafson had 15 kills, Casey Nicoletti added seven kills, Makayla Lovejoy had 18 assists, and Kellie Rock had 20 assists.
“Our girls had a great attitude and did not give up,” NSH coach Charlie Hessel said. “We struggled with consistency in a lot of ways, but as a team, we learned that once a point is over we have to refocus on the next point.
“The one area we have been consistent is serving. As a team, we are right around 94 percent, which is right around where I’d like us to be.”
Johnson enjoyed a good night of serving, including serving the Tigers to 13 straight points in game three.
“Not only was she keeping it in, she was putting it right where she wanted it, and that was fun to see,” Hessel said.
Northwestern also won the junior varsity match 3-0 and the Tigers’ C team lost to Drummond's JV 2-1.
Northwestern hosts Solon Springs at 7 p.m. Thursday.
