The Northwestern Tigers improved to 2-2 on the season with a 3-1 win over the Bloomer Blackhawks Thursday night in Bloomer.

The Tigers lost the opening game 28-26 before rattling off wins of 26-24, 25-16 and 27-25 to win the Heart O’ North Conference match.

“It was a very fun match that featured a lot of momentum swings,” Northwestern coach Charlie Hessel said. “We trailed in the first game and the fourth game by as many as eight points, but our girls did not get rattled.

“We did not have a ton of kills, but they were big kills at timely moments. As a team we served 97 percent, so we kept the pressure on Bloomer. They have a powerful attack, but our front row got their hands on a lot of their hits and our back court did a great job of digging it up.  This was a big win for us.”

For the Tigers, Cheyenne Johnson had eight kills; Lexi Janigo had six kills and 15 digs; Sara Lahti added five kills; Daisy Mack dished out 26 assists; and Alyssa Frick had 26 digs.

The Tigers are at the Osceola Tournament at 9 a.m. Saturday.

Northwestern will then return home to play Hayward at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The Hurricanes are coached by former Tiger player and volunteer assistant coach Anna Morgan.
