UNIONVILLE — It took only 50 minutes for the Community Viqueens to claim a 3-0 straight set victory over the Cannon County Lionettes in a District 9-AA volleyball match Thursday night.
Community (5-3, 4-2) was operating on all cylinders as an impressive combination of kills, aces, and assists paved the way for the win.
The Viqueens were never threatened in the opening set as Community used a 7-0 run to increase its lead to 18-4 en route to a 25-10 victory.
The serving of libero Abi Brown and the net play of M.J. Simmons propelled the Viqueens in the second and third sets.
Brown was the server as Community completed an 11-0 run to take a 15-2 lead in the second set. With Simmons dominating play at the net, the Lionettes had no answer as the Viqueens completed the set with a 25-6 win.
After Community struggled with some setting early in the third set, the Viqueens made it lights out with the serving of Brown.
The hard serves of Brown were too much for the Lionettes as the Viqueens scored 18 consecutive points, including several aces on Brown's serve to take a 21-5 lead.
Meanwhile, Simmons finished things up at the net when there were rallies with her kills as Community closed out the match with a 25-7 win.
