Visiting O’Neill rallied from a first-game loss to defeat a young Boone Central/Newman Grove squad 3-1 Thursday in the first varsity event contested in Boone Central’s new gymnasium.
The Cardinals opened the match by building a big lead in the opening game, but had to hold off a late O’Neill run to win 25-23. The Eagles then took control in the second and third games, winning 25-18, 25-13 before outlasting the hosts in a hard-fought fourth-and-final game, 25-23.
“The girls have worked hard to gear up for the season, but were still not as consistent as we needed to be to hold off O’Neill,” new Card Coach Jordynn Weidner commented. “We have a lot of season left. Luckily, a lot of our mistakes are in our control and can be fixed.
“Looking forward to improving and seeing where the season goes.”
