     The Nemaha Central Middle School volleyball team played a tough Silver Lake team on Thursday, September 28. The A-team match was a very well played match. The first set was looking good for the Thunder, however, it quickly changed. With the score 19-12 NC, Silver Lake found a spark and scored 13 straight points. Silver Lake won the first set with a score of 25-19.  In the second set, Silver Lake jumped out in the lead 9-1.  NC fought their way back and finally tied the game at 18.  Thunder player, Ella Larkin was able to serve two more points.  Silver Lake answered, tying the game at 20.  NC rallied and Lilly Schultejans served the game winning point, but they were unable to score.  Silver Lake came back to make the score 24-23 and NC called a timeout.  After the timeout, the Silver Lake server had a net serve giving NC the victory 25-23.  The third set was a hard fought battle. The Thunder got out to a great start going up 6-3 after Ella Larkin served an ace. After an Addy Holthaus kill NC was up 12-5. Silver Lake came back and took the lead 12-14. The next series of points were very competitive as the score was tied 4 times, until it was 22-22. Silver Lake went on to score the next three and prevailed, winning the decisive set by a score of 25-22.  The Thunder may have lost the match, but they played very hard against a strong Silver Lake team.

    Eighth grader Nadia Padilla commented, “It was a great game and we did our best.” 

     In the B-team game, the Thunder got behind early in each set and were never able to gain momentum. Serving errors by the Thunder proved costly, as Silver Lake easily defeated NC 9-25. NC did show some improvement in the second set, but it was not enough to overcome Silver Lake and they lost 17-25.  The Thunder C-Team got behind early in both sets and lost them 10-25 and 12-25. Silver Lake plays their volleyball games a little different than NC does.  Silver Lake basically has 4 teams, an 8th grade A and B team and a 7th grade A and B team.  They did not bring all their players to the match at NC which led to the struggle in the B and C-team matches.

    “We didn't play very well. I think that it went to our heads on how good they usually are. We could have done better if we talked but we didn't do much of that,” said Gracyn Lierz.
