Bulldogs fall short in semifinals

Published: Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 04:30 PM.

Playing off the pinpoint sets of Heidi Nix and Makayla Lewis, who had 21 and 20 assists respectively, Skibba delivered a match-best 23 kills, McGee added 12 and Valle chipped in seven.

 In terms of delivering the biggest kill of the match, Skibba and Kenley Adams looked to be the top candidates.

 After watching Crestview erase a 17-19, first-set deficit with seven unanswered points, the duo delivered in the clutch for the Dolphins.

 Skibba, with her team down 24-23 in the second set, saved set point with a kill up the middle and then gave the Dolphins their second set point three points later, setting up a kill from Adams up the left side that shifted the momentum of the match.

 From there, the Dolphins never looked back.

 Trailing 18-17 in the third set, McGee and Skibba each delivered a pair of kills and a Nix closed out a 8-2 run with a kill to cap off a 25-20 win.

 Not even 15 minutes later the Dolphins put the finishing touches on a 25-12 win to move into the finals.
