Lions fall to Indians


OAKDALE, Conn. — Montville rallied to win the first game and went on to sweep Wheeler High 3-0 in an ECC Small Division girls’ volleyball match Wednesday evening.

The Lions scored the first four points of the first game and led late — 21-20 — before falling 25-21. Montville won the next two games by 25-16 scores.

“It was a great game with long rallies. Montville was just able to put the ball down and keep serves in when they needed to,” Wheeler coach Jennamarie Lesky said of the first game.

Wheeler also led that game 9-5 and 12-9.

“Our defense was unbelievable tonight. We kept every ball alive and we were able to get really good sets and good swings off defensive hits which is hard to do,” Lesky said.

Losing their focus at times at the service line is what hurt the Lions, she said.

Alysia Rathbun had three kills, three aces and eight digs for the Lions. Paula Herran added three aces, three kills and five digs.

Sara Gaccione contributed 20 digs and Lexie Galluci had three kills and 10 assists for Wheeler (4-8, 0-6 ECC-Small) which lost in five the first time it played Montville (6-7, 2-4 ECC-Small) this season.

Wheeler is off until Monday when it hosts Lyman Memorial at 5:30 p.m.
