NORTH KINGSTOWN — Headed to the bench after a dramatic comeback in Game 2 of Monday night’s battle with North Kingstown, the South Kingstown girls volleyball didn’t huddle up and start talking about how they could finish off the Skippers and avoid a collapse that’s been synonymous with the Rebels this season.
Instead, the girls look toward their fans, urging them to do the “roller coaster” cheer that has been a custom at all SK home matches. The group of high school boys complied and did the cheer, much to the dismay of the home crowd, which tried to drown out the visiting noise.
The Rebels had won the battle of the crowds – and then the team went on to win the match,
In a game that meant much more to the visiting team than it did to the home Skippers, South played perhaps its best match of the season, using a strategic lineup switch to overpower North, which could never find a groove and fell 25-21, 28-26, 25-19 to the charged up Rebels.
