THE OUTLOOK: DAVID BALL - Gresham setter Kalie Anderson keeps her eye on the ball during the Gophers loss at Central Catholic to start league play Tuesday.

MHC match

Team Score
Central Catholic

PORTLAND — Gresham's volleyball team rocked Central Catholic with a couple big hits early, but the problem with slapping a giant in the face is that they are likely to swing back.

Gresham relied on solid defense to turn Central away on its first four service chances, and the Gophers grew a 20-11 lead in the first set.

That's when the giant awoke.

Central Catholic would lose only one more point in the set, rushing back to win it 25-21 after a Gophers' pass went into the net, forcing the team to scramble and hit an errant attack wide.

Selena Batiste set the tone for the second set with back-to-back aces, and the Rams took command 14-3 and would go on to claim the sweep.
