Emmaus 3, CCHS 1 (22-25, 25-22, 26-24, 26-24)
RECAP - Trailing by five points in the fourth set, the Emmaus girls volleyball team put together an incredible rally to win Set 4 and the match as they spoiled Central Catholic's Senior Night with a 3-1 win over the Vikettes on Monday night at Rockne Hall.
The victory helped Emmaus close out the regular-season as they finished 14-2 in the Eastern Pennyslvania Conference and earned the top overall seed for the upcoming league playoffs. The Hornets also defeated Central Catholic for the second time this season, beating the Vikettes also in four sets (3-1) back on October 3.
Senior setter Caroline Bond, who was named the league's MVP earlier in the day, had a monster night for Emmaus with a game-high 44 assists to go along with 23 digs and three blocks. Junior Macy Van Den Elzen also had big match leading the Hornets offensive attack with 24 kills, while sophomore Jaya Bhagat added 16 kills.
Defensively, senior Rebecca Dalstad had a game-high 36 digs while teammate junior Kelsie Baus added 10 digs.
As the No. 1 seed in the league playoffs, Emmaus will be right back in action on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at home as they host Freedom, the No. 8 seed, in the quarterfinal round. The Hornets swept the Patriots earlier this season 3-0 back on September 20 in a match held at Freedom.
The winner of Emmaus/Freedom will take on the winner of the No. 4 vs No.5 matchup which pits Nazareth against Becahi. The other quarterfinal round games include No. 2 Parkland hosting No.7 Pleasant Valley and No. 3 Liberty at home against No. 6 CCHS.
