Mariners still undefeated after rout of Wizards

September 28, 2013

WEST WARWICK — The undefeated Narragansett volleyball team easily won the first two games of Wednesday night’s clash with West Warwick before the Wizards opened up a four-point lead midway through the third game.

In a match that started some two hours earlier ’Gansett’s Brooke McGreen and Ashley Kennedy pushed on, deadlocked in a battle with Westerly’s Margo Douglas and Katie Kuzmic with the overall match on the line.
Fatigue – both mental and physical – had clearly set in for both sides as follow throughs lacked the vigor they once had.

As much as every coach wants to win every match most will admit that as long as they see improvement they’ll leave a game satisfied.
For the Exeter-West Greenwich girls tennis team, Tuesday’s match at Scituate was a concrete example that the Knights are better than they were at the start of September.
After opening the season by getting swept at home by the Spartans EWG gave Scituate all it could handle Tuesday before falling 5-2.
