Cincy gets back to winning ways

The Cincinnatus Central volleyball team got back on the winning track Monday evening with a 27-25, 25-17, 6-25, 25-23 Central Counties League win over visiting Stockbridge Valley.
First-place host DeRuyter, meanwhile, was a 25-16, 25-18, 25-23 winner over McGraw.
Cincinnatus 3, Stockbridge Valley 1: “It was a good all-around match with more offense and some nice defensive coverage,” said Red Lions coach Macy Cobb, her team now 2-4 in the league and 2-9 overall. “The first set went back-and-forth with both teams settling in and working on offense until finally we finished it at 27. Stockbridge Valley (2-5, 3-7) jumped out to an 8-1 lead in the second game before Mallory Cobb served 13 straight points and we didn’t look back.
“They got revenge in the third set, as Miranda Rowe scored 14 points in a row and we never recovered. They took a 9-1 lead in the fourth set before Johanna Stark notched 10 points in a row to get us back into the set. After that we didn’t lose the lead.”
