Bulldogs help cause, win match

GIRLS’ VOLLEYBALL: Burbank joins Crescenta Valley in raising funds for breast cancer research, and locals able to win Pacific League contest in three games.

October 24, 2009|By Gabriel Rizk

Burbank led the first game until Crescenta Valley pulled even at 19. The Falcons would battle to tie the game twice more at 23 and 24 but could never get a lead. They made their move earlier in the second game, pulling ahead, 5-4, on a roof by Gagliardi and led 12-11 on a kill from setter Payton Wheeler.

But Burbank took full control with a 6-0 run, sparked by a kill from Narine Kirakosyan that broke a 12-12 tie and gave the Bulldogs an 18-13 lead.

“I told them we had to come out hard and stick to the game plan,” said Brown, whose team closed out the second game on a 7-3 run. “Our serving increased a ton in the second game and I think that helped us a lot in the third game.”

The two teams were virtually neck-and-neck throughout the third game until the Bulldogs took a 20-17 edge and soon had the Falcons’ backs against the wall at 23-19. Crescenta Valley rallied to within one point on kills from Tiffani Wilcox and Julia Adams, but once again, Burbank was able to hold on.
