Prep Volleyball: First-place Fergus Falls outlasts Cardinals in 5
Willmar Minnesota 2208 Trott Ave. SW / P.O. Box 839 56201

FERGUS FALLS -- The Willmar Cardinals volleyball team appeared to be headed to an easy Central Lakes Conference win Thursday when Fergus Falls switched up their lineup and bore down on its serves.

The Cardinals won two games to open the match, buckled in Game 3 and never fully recovered, falling in five games, 21-25, 17-25, 25-8, 25-20 and 15-9.

Cardinals coach Traci Grussing said the Otters, the CLC leader at 6-0 went to a larger lineup after dropping the first two games and the Cardinals had trouble adjusting.

"We still play like a very inexperienced team," Grussing said. "We have spurts where we look great and then we have times where we totally fall apart."

The Cardinals did recover to make Games 4 and 5 close, but the momentum had swung too far the other way by that points.

Emily Minnick led the Cardinals with 18 kills and 5 ace blocks, and Dani Rosen finished with 12 kills. Setter Riley Grussing had 39 assists, 2 blocks and 13 digs.

Willmar (3-3, 3-5) plays at home against St. Cloud Tech at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
