Bruins recharge in time to win in five
Mount Hood Conference
TROUTDALE Barlow's volleyball team flipped the switch just in time to salvage a five-set win over Reynolds in a mid-season battle between playoff contenders.
The Bruins outscored Reynolds 50-33 to take the first two sets only to see Reynolds rush back to even the match.
The Raiders kept the hot hand by winning the first three points on the decisive set before Barlow caught fire. Brynna Stauffer put the Bruins in front with a powerful kill that deflected off the arms of a Reynolds player and crashed into the back wall of the gym.
The Raiders would force a sideout to tie the score, but Barlow claimed 11 of the last 13 points to win decisively. Barlow's Tori Camp hit a service ace to bring up match point.
The Bruins (4-2) travel to a tournament at South Albany this weekend before hosting Clackamas (5-1) at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
