Lady Wave drops tough match to Piqua

 “I think they are more than capable of winning the tough games" - Coach Hardesty

GREENVILLE – The Lady Wave dropped a 3-1 MVL volleyball match to the visiting Piqua Lady Indians.

“We have to be able to back up or play with some emotions, a sense of urgency, some excitement,” said Greenville coach, Michelle Hardesty. “Some of those things have to come within ourselves – within our players. It was a loss that we weren’t anticipating.”

Piqua took the opening set by a 25-20 score with the Lady Wave battling back in set No. 2 taking an early 8-2 advantage. Piqua got even at 15-15 before Greenville used a 7-2 run to lead 22-17 only to have the visitors storm back with a 26-24 win and go up 2-0 over the Wave.

Greenville used a 4-0 third set start to send the Lady Wave to a 25-19 win and trail 2-1 on the night.

Set No. 4 saw the Lady Wave trail 5-1 early before battling back to knot the score at 7-7, the first of six ties in the set; 8-8, 9-9, 11-11, 12-12 and 21-21 before the visitors would close out the night with a 25-23 fourth set win and take the night 3-1.

“We had missed serves when we shouldn’t have – missed serves at key moments,” Hardesty stated,   “just things they need to work on within themselves and then things we need to work on as a team.”

“I think they are more than capable of winning the tough games,” Hardesty concluded, “but they have to want it more.”
