Bulldogs come up short in battle with South Haven
That, in Otsego volleyball coach Candace Holmes’ opinion, was the difference in her team’s 25-22, 25-20, 22-25, 25-19 loss to South Haven in a Wolverine Conference crossover match on Thursday, Sept. 18.
“We came up against a team that passed the ball much better than we did tonight,” Holmes said. “We need to work on accuracy of passes and it was evident tonight.”
Given the Bulldogs’ issues with passing, the offense had a hard time finding a consistent rhythm.
“We really limited our opportunities to hit at the net and in the end that’s what made the difference,” Holmes said. “South Haven had many opportunities to hit at our defense and in turn they were very successful.”
Despite the setback, Holmes has no doubt her team will put in the work necessary to correct the passing issue.
“We will continue to work at it and continue to improve,” she said. “My girls are hard workers with a desire to win and I know they will make the commitment in practice to get better in this area.”
