Orchard Park upends Clarence

After dropping the first game, Orchard Park came back to win three straight and upend top-ranked Clarence in an ECIC Division I girls volleyball match. The Quakers won, 19-25, 25-23-, 25-20, 25-20.

"Clarence has dominated our division the last few years. They're a hard team to beat," OP coach Greg Lardo said. "They came out and beat us good in Game 1. By the middle of Game 2, we finally relaxed a bit, took a deep breath and started making smarter plays and stayed aggressive."

Ashley Dogal had 10 kills and five blocks for the Quakers (13-3, 9-2) while Amanda Renaldo had 39 digs and one ace.

"It's nice to see my team start to really believe in each other and really have expectations they're going to win," Lardo said. "You see it on their faces, in their play. They're playing with confidence."

A relentless attack paid off for Pioneer as the Panthers earned a 3-2 win over Amherst in ECIC field hockey.

“That makes our record 8-6 and for a bunch of sophomores that’s not bad. I’m pretty happy with them,” Jana Landahl said. “Our attack was relentless. We had a pretty rough game against Will East. We outshot them, 17-9, and got beat, 7-0. Our attack was pretty tough today. We came right at them.”

Helping the attack was the midfield play of Julia Brzezicki and Bella Addesa.
