The girls volleyball team lost to Schaumburg on Tuesday night in three games.  The Knights came out strong winning the first game, but lacked their opening intensity in the next two.

In the first game, it seemed like the Knights gained momentum, and went on to 25-20.  Midway through the game, the Knights went on a 4-1 scoring streak which made all the difference in beating the Saxons.

“In the first game we didn’t really know what the team was going to be like,” senior Carly Thompson said. “So I think everyone just came out playing really hard, and we had a lot of energy.”

In the second game, Schaumburg went on a 10-0 run and the game just got too far out of the Knights reach.  They ended up losing 25-18.

“We started making a lot of our own errors,” Thompson said.  “We let ourselves get in our heads.”

In the third game, the Saxons came out scoring the first seven points.  Throughout the game, the Knights were down.  Schaumburg outscored Prospect 18-4 to take the game, 25-14.

Moving forward, coach Reidy hopes they can play strong throughout the game.

“We have to play to win.  We played scared.  We played to survive, where Schaumburg was playing to win the whole match,” Reidy said.
