H.S. VOLLEYBALL: Lady Indians roll past Berea again

RICHMOND — The final regular-season showdown between district rivals Madison Central and Berea Community wasn’t really all much different from the first time the teams faced each other.

The outcome was same.

The Lady Indians over-powered the Lady Pirates (2-10) at the net again and rolled to a 3-0 win Tuesday in Richmond. Central won by scores of 25-15, 25-5 and 25-8.

The Lady Indians (6-0) had 22 kills and had 11 blocks as they stayed undefeated on the season.

“We did come out a little flat,” Central coach Marita Kinley said. “I wasn’t too excited about that. We turned it up a little bit. We tried to do some different things with them offensively and I think that was part of it. I think we controlled the momentum of the game, pretty much.”

Payton Templeton led Central with 10 kills, while Tyra Cain had six blocks.

The Lady Indians had 10 kills in the first set and two blocks from Samantha Walczyk, but had they also missed seven serves.

Katie Stuart helped Central get off to a fast start in the second set, connecting on a couple of aces. The Lady Indians went up 4-1 early and behind the good serving of Kiara Clayton and kills by Templeton ran out to a 19-3 lead.

“We have a little bit more experience than them,” McKinley said. “I think that makes a big difference. I think they have improved a lot since the last time we saw them.”

In the first meeting of the season (Aug. 20 in Berea), the Lady Pirates won just 17 total points.

This time around, things were more competitive.

Central jumped out to an 8-1 lead in the final set and took a 15-5 lead on a Templeton kill.

The Lady Indians stretched their lead to 19-5 moments later.

“We will take it anyway we can get it,” Kinley said. “They’ve been working hard in practice and they’ve been getting the job done. It’s not always pretty. But, I’m excited about what I’ve seen so far. Our schedule does get a little more competitive (soon).”

Central is set to take on Lexington Christian Academy Thursday in Richmond.

Berea is set to return to action Thursday at home against Estill County.
