Bulldogs show promise in loss to Falcons


WESTERLY — Division II girls’ volleyball runnerup Cranston West outbattled Westerly High in the first game and went on to shut out the Bulldogs 3-0 in Tuesday’s league opener for both teams.

“The first game we played awesome. Our passing was on, we were communicating. I really think we lost some confidence with the loss and kind of got in a run that we couldn’t come out of,” Bulldog coach Molly Morrone said.

The Falcons won the first game 25-21, then defeated Westerly 25-13 in each of the next two games.

Izzy Carey tied for the team lead in kills with five and in digs with seven. She also had three solo blocks.

Julianna Morrone had five kills and six digs. Lia Gabrielle had seven digs. Andrea Morrone had five digs and five assists. Alyssa Valentini had five digs and two aces, and Halee Menta had four digs.

Coach Morrone said Westerly kept hustling in the second and third games but couldn’t capitalize on their serves or attacks.

“The girls felt like we coluld have beaten them but we need to communicate more.

“Now we know what we need to work on in practice,” she said.

Cranston West finished in a three-way tie for first place in the 10-team Divisoin II-South standings a year ago, tying Exeter-West Greenwich and East Greenwich at 15-3.

EWG defeated Cranston West 3-1 in the D-II championship match.

Westerly has another home league match on Friday, taking on Cranston East at 6:30 p.m.
