"In the fifth game we were up 9-6," said Willmar coach Terrin DeBoer. "But our passing fell apart and we couldn't do much after that. The girls blocked well (tonight), but we needed to keep our passing consistent."

Emily Minnick had 7 of Willmar's 18 ace blocks while Katie Lippert added another 3, and Addy Nelsen, Riley Grussing, McKenzie Hastad and Lindsey Atchison 2 more each.

Lippert led the team with 11 kills, but no one else average more than 2 a game. Minnick followed with 9 and Atchison 6. Grussing guided the offense with 35 assists.

Willmar hosts St. Cloud Apollo on Thursday during "Breast Cancer Awareness Night." Fans are encouraged to wear pink clothing.
