Without Abney’s power as hitter Freeport had no match at the net for the likes of Wickery, Risen and Hanah Wadsworth.

Wickery led all players with 10 kills, Wadsworth had five and Risen four. Risen also dished out a team best 12 assists for the Gators and Wickery added five assists.

Wickery also had match-high six aces. Wagner and Alex Roy each had three aces for the Gators. Wagner topped Baker with nine digs.

Despite leaving halfway through the second set Abney still tied for lead in kills for Freeport with three. Ashlyn Davis also had three kills. Kennedi Barnes and Charity Head had two kills each for Freeport.

Bulldog coach Tina Knight could only shake her head as she talked about the injury bug that hit her team again Thursday.

“We are such a young team and, not to make any excuses, we have just had injury after injury and we had another one here tonight,” she said. “When lose one (player) we try to fix it and learn a new rotation. We had just learned a new rotation for this game and then that happened.

“We are just trying to remain competitive and that is difficult to do. As a coach you have years like this and seasons like this and it happens in every sport.”
