Staff Report

BROADALBIN — In bouncing back from their first loss of the season, the Broadalbin-Perth volleyball team wasted little time taking care of business Tuesday night against Amsterdam.

Cassy Bown had nine kills and 16 service points, leading the Lady Patriots in a 3-0 sweep of Amsterdam by scores of 25-4, 25-7 and 25-13.

“I thought we served really well, and when you can keep a team off-balance with your serve, they’re not gonna be able to run an offense,” B-P coach Mike Calvello said. “I thought we did that pretty well tonight. Our passing was pretty good, and we finished well. That’s what we need.”

Olivia Casey and Eliana Fraser added five kills apiece for B-P (7-1, 7-1 Foothills Council), as the Lady Patriots bounced back from Thursday’s loss to South Glens Falls. Lily Mitchell chipped in 13 service points, including a match-best five aces.

Amsterdam (2-7, 2-6) was coming off a 3-0 win Friday against Schuylerville, but head coach Christine Sherlock left Tuesday’s match disappointed with what she saw from her team.

“Every team in the Foothills is a tough team,” Sherlock said. “We just came off a tough run up north, playing those teams up there is running a gauntlet, and we played a lot better against those teams. I don’t know what happened today. It just wasn’t there today at all.”

Alyssa Kuchis led the Lady Rams with three kills, two digs and two blocks. Madison Carmona added three digs and two assists.

Both teams will be back in action tonight. B-P visits Gloversville, while Amsterdam will try to repeat an early-season win when the Lady Rams travel to Scotia-Glenville.

“We’re gonna have to turn the page and hope we can bring our ‘A’ game against Scotia, instead of our ‘Z’ game,” Sherlock said.
