Sheffield rallies in fourth set to beat Brockway

Trailing 24-17 in the fourth set against visiting Brockway on Thursday, Sheffield coach Melissa Lemay knew her team would have to play mistake-free in order to win.

They did.

Marissa Grubbs recorded 7-straight service points as the Wolverines rallied for a 27-25 win to take the match 3-1 – 18-25, 25-21, 25-13, 27-25.

“They did not give up,” Lemay said of her team. “They battled.”

This gave Sheffield a season sweep of Brockway, but Lemay noted the improvement she saw in their opponent.

“Brockway is much improved from the team we played just a week ago,” she said. “There’s nothing more dangerous than playing a team that you beat.”

Leading Sheffield were Mya Grubbs (7 service points, 7 kills, 31 assists), Eliza Davidson (12 kills), Marissa Grubbs (16 service points, 6 kills) and Lexi Lyon (12 service points, 11 kills, 5 blocks).

The JV team fell in three – 25-21, 23-25, 14-16.

“They were right there,” Lemay said.

Megan Johnson (9 service points, 7 aces, 8 assists) and Lily Lauffenberger (7 service points, 5 kills) paced Sheffield.

The Wolverines return to action on Monday, traveling to Ridgway.

“Hopefully we can take this momentum and go play with a chip on our shoulder,” Lemay said.
