WRENTHAM, Mass. – In the opening game of Thursday night’s Div. 1 Central-East semifinal, King Philip jumped all over visiting Quincy to build a 12-4 lead and then extending it back to seven points at 20-13. It looked like the Warriors were going to have a quick one-game lead on the Presidents in the rematch of last year’s five-setter at this same stage.

Instead, Quincy rallied to win 12 of the next 15 points and steal the game. Volleyball is a game of momentum swings and KP watched the Presidents carry their momentum over into a dominant second game that put Quincy on the verge of another sectional final.

That could have been it for another strong season for the Warriors, but instead KP fought back. Urged on by its home fans, KP swung the momentum back on its side and stormed back into the match, winning game three and saving a pair of match points to take game four.

Unfortunately for KP (19-3), Quincy was not rattled by the Warriors forcing a fifth game or by the Warriors jumping out to an early 4-1 lead in the deciding set. The teams battled back and forth and in the end, Quincy (19-3) had just enough to pull out the 3-2 (25-23, 25-16, 15-25, 26-28, 15-13) victory and advance again to the final.

“They played great,” said KP coach Kristen Geuss about Thursday’s opponent. “They are a great defensive team; they picked up everything.

“We tried. We played our game…We’ve come back from two games before, just couldn’t pull it out tonight. It wasn’t our night.”

Unlike on Tuesday, KP had the size advantage on Quincy, but the Presidents still had strength on the outside, especially senior Jessie Lei. Quincy took an early 4-1 lead but KP bounced right back with an 11-0 run to take control of the first set. Carly Adams had three straight aces at one point in the run and Sydney Phillips, who was chosen as the Hockomock League MVP by the coaches, added four kills.

The Presidents cut into the lead to get it down to four points, but again KP had an answer with Michaela Palumbo getting a big block to push the lead back to seven at 20-13. Things fell apart for the Warriors in the serve-receive game and Quincy stormed back into it. Geuss tried calling both her timeouts but the visitors took the set.

“We came out a little slow, as usual, and in tournament games you just can’t do that,” Geuss explained.

The energy of the first game carried into the second and Quincy built an early lead. After an error cut the lead to just two points, the Presidents went on a 9-3 run and took command at 19-11. The lone Warriors player who was having any success in the second was outside hitter Liv Baldufu>, as Quincy abandoned the block and sat back to seemingly dig every hit.

“They were getting all the digs,” said Geuss. “I guess they didn’t have to [block] cause they’re that good defensively.”

When asked if it is difficult to bounce back after losing a lead like KP did in the first, Geuss replied, “Absolutely. They had the enthusiasm for the second game. We didn’t. We just weren’t playing our game.”

The Warriors found their game in the third. Phillips had been quiet since her strong start but suddenly started clicking off the passing of Adams and the defensive play of libero Amanda Loewen. Phillips had seven kills in the second and Loewen closed out the game with back-to-back aces to keep the match alive.

Guess was asked about what got Phillips going in the third. She said, “She just needed her confidence back. I think once she got some more momentum, once you get one over and in you start to pick up some confidence.”

KP jumped out to a big lead in the fourth set as well with Loewen getting two more aces and the Warriors saving a point with Adams, Loewen, Kat Kmetz, and Molly Croke all keeping the ball alive before Balduf finished it with a blast down the line to make it 14-6.

The fifth set seemed inevitable at that point but again the Presidents showed resiliency to bounce back, cutting the lead to just three at 18-15. Phillips had the response for KP with three straight kills to give the home team a 23-17 lead, but the Warriors could not close it out and a kill by Shannon Foley tied it at 24-24.

Twice KP had to save a match point and then Emma Lopez rose up and earned her fourth kill of the game to seal a 28-26 win.

In the fifth, with the crowd riveted to every hit, KP took a 4-1 lead after a pair of Phillips kills. Quincy bounced back to win the next five points and force Geuss into a timeout. Lopez tied it at 8-8 with a kill but Quincy would regain the lead at 12-9 and force a second timeout.

A service error and a Phillips kill got KP within one. After an errant shot, Phillips made it 13-12. A service error set up the third match point for Quincy, but Phillips kept the game alive with another kill. The fourth match point turned out to be the difference for Quincy and fittingly it was Lei that got the winner.

“We weren’t picking up the tips. One or two points here or there could’ve changed the momentum easily,” said Geuss.

She added, “It’s good competition. It’s good volleyball and we had a great season. I’m so proud of them.”

Warriors Overcome Tough Start to Beat Newton South

WRENTHAM, Mass. – It had been nearly two weeks since King Philip had taken the court for a meaningful game and there was noticeable rust, as Newton South jumped all over the Warriors in the opening set and held off a late rally to take a 1-0 lead in Tuesday night’s Div. 1 Central-East quarterfinal.

KP shook off the rust from its 12-day layoff and turned the momentum around, winning three straight sets for a 3-1 (20-25, 25-23, 25-15, 25-23) victory and advancing to the semifinal.

“Absolutely, I think that hurts,” said KP coach Kristen Guess when asked about the long break between matches. “We’d rather play, play, play. We do well when we play three games a week. It is brutal not playing.”

The Warriors also put themselves in early holes in three of the four sets, showing resiliency to bounce back including a rally from 8-2 down in the third set that saw KP win 23 of the next 30 points to put themselves within a set of a victory.

Guess said, “It’s been the history of KP to start out slow, but these kids never give up. They fight for every point.”

The first set was dominated by the height of the Lions at the net (three players over six feet tall) and the hitting of junior Ella Kim, who tallied nine kills in the opening set alone. KP hung around in large part thanks to the play of junior hitter Sydney Phillips, who was recently voted the Hockomock League MVP by the coaches. Phillips had five kills and several service points in the set.

In the second, KP again fell behind by a couple of points and the crowd was starting to get a little antsy, but a series of mishits by the Lions allowed KP to pull ahead. Back-to-back kills by Liv Balduf and Emma Lopez put the Warriors up 10-5. The Lions pulled back in front at 20-19 but another Lopez hit tied it and then she set up set point with another kill before Phillips tied the match with a blast.

Lopez, a senior captain, has missed nearly four weeks with a back injury and Guess was happy to see her return to take some of the pressure off Phillips on the outside. Guess said, “I’ve been telling her all week that she’s peaking at the right time. From being out for four weeks, she’s definitely peaking.”

Newton South jumped all over the Warriors to start the third set with Kim again getting hot on the outside including a rip that made it 8-2 and had KP on the ropes. But the Warriors rallied again and started to put together a strong defensive effort highlighted by senior setter Carly Adams scrambling to one-hand a return while falling out of bounds and watching as it landed for a point on the other side.

Adams was helped by Elise Pereira and libero Amanda Loewen (nine digs) in starting to stem the tide from Kim’s big hitting. Angela Vallente served six straight points to break the set open and give KP an 18-12 lead. Phillips added a pair of kills and then Kat Kmetz dug out back-to-back rockets from Kim to save a point at 22-13.

Suddenly, the Warriors looked like the No. 2 seed and went into the fourth with confidence. For the first time in the match, KP also took an early lead in what turned out to be the final set. A Phillips ace made it 7-3. Two aces in a row from Balduf pushed the lead to 12-6 and great hustle by Pereira and Loewen to chase down a ball on the back line saved a point and stopped a Lions rally at 14-10. Kmetz followed that with two aces in a row.

When asked if the coaches had made any adjustments to try and stop the hitting of Newton South after the opening set, Guess responded, “We didn’t change anything. We don’t give up on them. We have confidence in them. If they get their serves over and in we try to get the other teams out of system so they can’t set up those great hitters.”

The Lions showed grit in battling back to keep the fourth set close, pulling to within 22-19 on a kill by middle hitter May Boucher. Facing match point, Newton South won four straight points to pull back within one but Phillips slammed the door on the comeback with a kill off the Lions block to seal the victory.

“That is Sydney,” said Guess of Phillips’ contributions on Tuesday. “Other team have a hard time picking up her balls or blocking her. She’s our go-to outside hitter.”

This is the second season in a row that King Philip (19-2) has knocked out Newton South at this stage and now the Warriors get another rematch with the visit of No. 3 seed Quincy, which beat KP in five sets in last year’s semifinal.
