The Lady Shamrocks are playing in the Hermann Volleyball tournament this week.  The Rocks played last night in Pool A  along with Hermann, Borgia, and Montgomery City.  Each team played two sets against each other.

Hermann Match
New Haven came out in their first game against Hermann, a completely different team, compared to a week ago when Hermann pretty much manhandled The Rocks.

The Rocks pounced on Hermann early in the first game, scoring five unanswered points and building a 14-9 lead.  Hermann would rally back, bringing them with in one (20-19).  The Rocks finished off the first game defeating Hermann. (25-22) Hermann came back in the second game to win. (19-25)

Borgia Match
The Rocks went up against Borgia in their second match beat Borgia in the first game 25-22 in a hard fought battle between both teams.  The second game was no different with the exception, Borgia winning. (22-25)

Montgomery City Match
In New Haven’s third and finial game against Montgomery City, there is not much to say.  The Rock’s won both games easily.  (25-12, 25-7)

Last night's overall recap.
The final game of the night would determine whether New Haven would be in the Winners or Consolation bracket.  If Hermann and Borgia would split sets, this would pretty much guarantee Hermann and Borgia in the winners bracket.

Borgia came out and won the first set.  Hermann controlled their own destiny; a win puts them in the winner bracket and a loss into the consolation side. Where New Haven would finish was all based on what Hermann did in the second game.

When it was all said and done, Borgia was able to pull of the second set win, giving Borgia the number one seed for Pool A and New Haven the number 2. Hermann finished third and will play for consolation.

The Shamrocks will play Thursday at 6 p.m. against the winner of Pool B and a win will put the Rocks in the Championship game at 8 p.m.
