WALLACE ­— Sometimes having two games so close together can have a negative effect on a team by wearing them down.

But in the case of the Wallace Volleyball team, its just less time to wait to redeem yourself.

The Lady Miners split home games Monday and Tuesday nights when they took on the Kootenai High School Warriors and the Lakeside High School Knights, respectively.

The game with the Warriors was a back and forth affair.

Wa-Hi came out strong in the first and third matches by taking them 25-13 and 27-25.

Kootenai refused to quit though and came from behind each time by winning the second and fourth matches 16-25 and 13-25.

To complete the comeback, the Warriors stole the fifth match from Wallace 13-15 for the win.

Wallace Junior Hayley Oertli contributed eight assists, nine digs, and three aces.

Senior Destiny Angle once again put up solid numbers from the serving position with five aces and two kills.

Coach Spooner contributed the loss to simply not finishing.

“I think the girls were just hoping that Kootenai would make the mistakes to give us the points,” she said, “but they were hungry for a win as well.”

Following the tough loss against conference rival Kootenai on Monday, the Lady Miners looked to give their home crowd at least one win against another conference rival on Tuesday- Lakeside.

With determination and confidence, Wa-Hi breezed through the Knights by sweeping them in three sets (25-17, 25-14, and 25-17).

Senior Halei Ungerbuehler powered the teams offense with an impressive 11 kills and one ace.

Oertli had another great showing and put up seven assists, four digs, four aces, and one kill.

Angle also continued her superb serving play with seven aces and contributed to the team’s defense with 10 digs.

Coach Spooner was pleased with the girls’ effort in this one and thought they improved upon mistakes they were making the night before.

“During the lakeside game,” she said, “I thought we had much better ball control than when we played Kootenai. When we played Kootenai we were diving for no reason and flopping around. Against lakeside it seemed like we got under the ball a lot better and moved our feet.”

The Wallace Volleyball team (4-7) takes on the Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy on the road tonight (Wednesday, Oct. 4) at 7:30 p.m.

JV takes to the court at 6 p.m.
