The Cut Bank Lady Wolves dropped a pair of matches last weekend, falling to Choteau and Power. The Lady Wolves have just one match slated for this week as they head to Conrad on Thursday, Oct. 15.
There was a game scheduled with Shelby on Friday night, but that has been postponed.
Thursday, Oct. 8, the Choteau Bulldogs came to town and made short work of the Lady Wolves sweeping the home team 25-10, 25-18 and 25-7.
Sienna Spotted Bear led the defense with 13 digs while Erin Schmidt led the offense with three kills. Kendra Spotted Bear followed with two kills. Camille Bradley dished out four assists and served up three aces while Brianne Murphy followed with three assists and two aces. Kendall Hibbs recorded the only two Cut Bank blocks in the match.
“We had a great second set against Choteau,” said head coach Chelsey Brown. “I see moments where the girls are clicking, we just have to click for an entire set and not every other point.”
Saturday, Oct. 10, the Lady Wolves were scheduled to travel to Rocky Boy but that was cancelled late in the week. Cut Bank was able to pick up Class C Power for the match as the Pirates also had their Saturday match with Valier postponed. The Lady Wolves took the opening game 25-19 but then Power won the next three 25-13, 25-22, 29-27 to take the match.
Hibbs recorded nine kills, six aces and two blocks in the loss while Bradley followed with four aces and also had seven assists. Darci Littrell added three assists in the loss. Sienna Spotted Bear led the defense with 25 digs followed by Paayton Branch with 12.
“We played tough but we still had too many errors on our side of the court to pull through with a win,” said Brown. “I keep telling the girls all we can do is learn from our mistakes and play better in the next game.”
The Lady Wolves will be looking to avenge an earlier defeat against Conrad on Thursday, Oct. 15, when they face the Cowgirls.
“This is going to be a redemption game for us,” said Brown. “If we can put all the pieces together it’s going to be a great game for our girls.”
