Patrick Henry jumped out to a 15-5 lead in the first game and never looked back on its way to a 25-14, 25-20, 25-16 Northwest Ohio Athletic League victory over Archbold, Tuesday, Oct. 12 at PHHS.

The Patriots finished the regular season 15-5, 7-1 NWOAL. Evergreen won the league title outright with an 8-0 record after defeating Liberty Center on Tuesday. The Vikings ended the regular season with a 16-3 record.

The Streaks finished 15-7, 6-2 NWOAL.

In game one, PH led 4-2 when Emily Nagel stepped up to serve for the host. By the time Archbold finally got a side out, the Patriots were up 11-3.

PH won the first game on a Tori Meyer kill.

Archbold got its footing in the second game, staying close but leading only once, at 4-3.

Sarah Wyse’s serve tied the game at 19 when PH’s serve receive went into the rafters, and the score was tied again at 20 with a kill by Becca Gerig.

But PH scored the next five points to win 25-20.

The Streaks led 12-10 in the third game when the Patriots scored four straight points for a 14-12 advantage. After an Archbold time-out, Jenny Lehman’s kill closed the Streaks to within one, 14-13.

That was the closest Archbold got. PH scored five straight points for a 19-13 lead before a long serve gave the side out back to AHS.

Archbold’s final two points came on a block by Nicole Hurst and Alyssa Gobrogge and a Hurst spike that was only partially blocked. A net violation by AHS at match point gave the game and match to PH.

Gerig led the Streaks with nine kills. Hurst had six; Abby Short and Lehman each had five.

Wyse served two of the team’s five aces. She was 46/46 in setting.
