Farnsworth leads Bees to tenth win

By on October 8, 2018

Junior Madison Farnsworth registered 18 kills and 17 digs as Byron-Bergen avenged an early season loss to Attica in four sets 25-21, 25-23, 22-25, 25-19 in girl’s volleyball.

“Attica played better than when we played them there, but we played so much better,” Bees head coach Cindy D’Errico said.

The first set was tied 20-20 before Farnsworth had one kill and one ace sandwiching an ace by freshman Alexandra Vurraro and a kill from junior Hannah VanSkiver to secure the victory.

Attica led the second set 12-9, the Bees began their comeback after a timeout with a kill by junior Annabella Vurraro and a Farnsworth ace. Junior Hannah Catalino helped build the lead to four with an ace before Attica twice closed to within one point of the lead. But a late ace by Alexandra Vurraro and two Farnsworth kills ended any hopes of a comeback.

The Bees led the third set by as many as six points, but the momentum quickly changed as the Blue Devils ran off ten consecutive points to lead by four. Byron-Bergen came back with an 8-3 run of their own with two kills from Farnsworth and aces served by Alexandra Vurraro and Catalino to put the Bees back up 21-20. But Attica finished with a 5-1 run to ruin the bid for a sweep.

In the final set, Attica again led early thanks to a 9-1 run, but the Bees finally found their offensive and defensive rhythm with a 16-4 streak of their own to take control.

Annabella Vurraro led the Bees with 18 digs with five aces while Alexandra Vurraro dished out 27 assists and added three aces. VanSkiver chipped in seven kills with a pair of aces.
