Ord over Kearney Catholic

Motivated Ord team drops Kearney Catholic

KEARNEY — The hunted got caught.

Scoring the last four points of the match, fourth-ranked Ord upset No. 1-ranked Kearney Catholic 25-20, 26-28, 26-24 Thursday night at the Stars’ Cope Coliseum.

Kearney Catholic (19-1) had gone ahead 24-22 on Courtney Shundoff’s eighth kill of the match. But Andrea Carson kept Ord’s hopes alive with her 15th kill. Danielle Bruha followed with three straight kills to give the Chanticleers (18-1) the match.

“She made some big, fearless swings at the end of the match when things were tight,” Ord coach Wendy Alexander said. “She was transitioning off the net about 15 feet and coming in like a truck.”

Meanwhile, the Stars couldn’t get Shundoff back to the net quick enough. Coach Kris Conner said the Stars tried a couple things with Shundoff, who had “played a great third set for us,” but in that rotation, her first duty was serve receive, making it hard for her to get back on the attack.

Bruha, who finished with 11 kills, did just what Alexander wanted.

“Tonight, we came in and we said, ‘We’re the underdogs and we’ve got nothing to lose here.’ It showed a lot of maturity for them to come back and swing so hard at the end of the match. That’s what we needed to do,” Alexander said.

That worked very well in the first set. Ord used a pair of four-point runs to take 10-7 and 17-14 leads. Kearney Catholic didn’t recover from the second Chanticleer surge. Ord didn’t get a similar surge in the second set.

In the first set, “we had a lot of swings and they only had one block,” Alexander said. “In the second set, that was not the case. Their blockers did a great job.”

Anna Squiers had back-to-back stuff blocks and another rejection on the second point, that gave the Stars a 23-21 lead.

“Anna had two big blocks. … Without her getting those stuff blocks, it would have been over in two,” Conner said.

Ord came back to tie the set at 24, 25 and 26, but another block, by Madison Squiers and Shundoff, gave Kearney Catholic the lead and Madison Squiers finished it off with a kill.

The Chanticleers forged comebacks in the third set, too, but didn’t have to face the tough block.

“Ord’s got four or five solid hitters. It’s not like you can defend one hitter because they have another one coming right behind them,” Conner said. “But we didn’t get our block set on the right side.

Conner said the back row was stalemated.

“We just really struggled with moving to the ball. Part of it was our front line, our block didn’t get set up quick enough to let our back row set up.”

Allie Welniak added 10 kills for the Chanticleers and Morgan Alexander had 38 set assists.

“We have six seniors, and I think maturity came though a little bit. They’ve worked very hard and finally, deep inside, they just wanted it maybe a little more,” coach Alexander said.

For Kearney Catholic, Kylie Thiele finished with 13 kills and Anna Squiers had nine. Anna Squiers finished with four kills, while Shundoff had three.

Madison Squiers finished with 18 set assists and seven kills.

“You look at the entire game and you just wish you would have played your best ball,” Conner said. “We just never could get in sync. A good part of our offense is what we do out of system. … We had some breakdowns in our pass game and our out-of-system attack wasn’t there tonight.

“If you don’t pass, you don’t communicate, you don’t hold a better block, you’re going to struggle.”

KEARNEY — Big plays lifted Kearney Catholic to a 35-32 victory Friday night at Ord.

The Stars’ Bryce James scored on a 94-yard kickoff return, a 70-yard run and a 53-yard run. Creighton Hamik scored on a 94-yard interception return.

“The big plays for us were crucial,” KCHS coach Dave Colling said in a phone interview after the game.

The Stars ran just 11 offensive plays in the first half as Ord dominated the game. The Chanticleers had more than 300 yards of total offense at halftime to Kearney Catholic’s 23. But Ord only led by six.

Kearney Catholic turned that around as James returned the second-half kickoff for a touchdown.

James ripped off a 53-yard run on the next possession, giving the Stars the lead for good. He finished with 185 yards on 17 carries.

But the game was never in hand and Ord appeared to have taken the lead in the game’s last minute with a completed pass into the end zone. But an offensive interference call and an excessive celebration infraction negated the score and moved the ball back to midfield

“We’ll watch film tomorrow morning and we will like some things we’ll see and we won’t like some things we see,” Colling said.

The defense will be under the microscope. Ord finished with 534 yards of total offense, while Kearney Catholic had just 221 yards. Colling said the Stars struggled to get third-down defensive stops, something that will have to change.

“We’re not used to giving up that many yards, but we had some guys who were just half a second late,” he said, explaining that the Stars’ defense is one that reacts to the offense. With a lot of the defenders seeing their first varsity action, they were a little tentative.

“We’ll get that fixed,” he said.

Getting out of the game with a victory is the big thing for the Stars.

“I liked the effort. We had some young guys and I think I saw them grow throughout the game a little bit,” Colling said.
