CHAPEL HILL — The Forrest Lady Rockets used a late comeback in the third set to force an extra set, but the Community Viqueens rebounded with a convincing fourth set as the Viqueens defeated the Lady Rockets 3-1 as both schools opened their 2022 volleyball seasons.
The Viqueens used runs in the first two sets to take the lead in the match.
After the Lady Rockets took an 8-6 lead in the opening set, Community took control.
The Viqueens scored the next five points to take an 11-8 advantage and then put the set out of reach with 10 consecutive points.
The Viqueens finished the set with a 25-17 win.
It was more of the same script in the second set.
After Community took a 9-8 lead, the Viqueens went on a 5-0 run to go up 14-8. Another 10-0 run upped the Viqueen advantage as Community took a 25-11 win.
The third set stayed close throughout with the Viqueens leading most of the way.
Community looked to close out the match after taking a 19-17 lead, but Forrest had other ideas as the Lady Rockets bounced back with the final eight points of the set to take a 25-19 win.
The Viqueens did not allow the Lady Rocket momentum to continue in the fourth set. Community returned to its form from the opening two sets as the Viqueens closed out the match with a 25-10 win.
Both teams are in action on Tuesday.
