Gophers defeat Drake
- 15-7 15-8 15-7
I didn't keep stats and the scoreboard was not displaying them either.
Good news: a win.
Bad news: Nicole may have set a new Gopher record for number of times
blocked in a single match. At least ten times. Probably more. Toss in
5-6 hitting errors and there's no way she was positive for the match.
Good news: Gophers still won handily with their main offensive weapon
having an off night. Nic also held up pretty well passing serve (and
they were definitely targetting her). This will be a common tactic...
Bad news: Steph Hagen has injured her ankle (in practice) and will be
out for a couple of weeks.
Good news: Charnette Fair played tonite, and was impressive offensively.
Also gives Heather Baxter a chance to play.
Bad news: Yvonne Wichert took a deflection (off Nicole) to the old kopf
and was pretty much wooziness defined for most of the night.
Good news: She rode her bike past me as I was walking to my car and
seemed to be steering it straight and true.
Bad news: she was still wearing her uniform and a t-shirt and may be a
candidate for pneumonia.
Good news: Linda Shudlick had a solid game blocking, hitting and
passing. Lisa Axel started and passed serve well. Lisa Aschenbrenner
played fairly well, as did Susan Shudlick.
So-so news: Lindsey's had better games. Shelmadine had an assist.
Tomorrow they fly out to Oregon, after flying back here from Hawaii.
