FROM THE COACH: Friday nights’ game against Red River was our worst performance of the season. We lacked energy and focus which led to a very lopsided outcome. It was a rough way to start the MCAC season. Our serve receive and ball control weren’t there from start to finish and Red River capitalized on that. The next night, we had an opportunity to improve against the same Rebels team we faced the night before. Our gym was packed which gave us a lot more energy from the start. We were a completely different team on the 2nd night of our back to back. The energy, intensity and focus were all ramped up. We held the lead for most of the first set until we gave up a crucial run towards the end. Going point for point, Red River won the points when it mattered and squeaked out the first set. That’s exactly how the rest of the match played out. They won the bigger points at the tail end of each set and won the match in straight sets. The feel after was much different as we battled way better during this match. We can take a lot more positives from Saturdays game and will look to build off of that moving forward.
