When you come into a game undefeated, you expect to receive the opponent’s best effort.  For East Forsyth’s boy’s volleyball team, that’s just what they got when they took on Hanes Middle last week.  The match went to three sets, and Hanes made the Ravens work for it. East Forsyth remains undefeated.

East Forsyth started off the first set as a team that was undefeated and ready to win handily. During the set, they led 9-5 by playing well on the defensive end and serving well.  Jaden McKnight and Treyvon George made things difficult for the Dragons at the net.

Hanes quickly fought back and took the lead 10-9 behind quality serving, forcing East Forsyth to call a timeout.  Hanes then stretched the lead out to 17-11 and the Ravens were not able to recover.  Following another Raven timeout Hanes closed out the set 21-14.

While coming in with high confidence, the Ravens quickly found themselves with their backs against the wall down one set.  The first serve was an indicator of how the set would play out as Jaden McKnight spiked the ball with emphasis to score the first point.

The Ravens would run 10 consecutive points to start the set.  Hanes called timeout to settle down the team.  East Forsyth had too much momentum as they just continued to pour it on consistently, maintaining a 10-point lead throughout. They won the second set 21-10.

The third set began just as the second had ended. East Forsyth stayed hot and led 5-0 early on.  Treyvon George and Matthew Thompson were ball hawks and did not allow Hanes to score easily.  With the score getting out of hand at 7-0, Hanes finally got on the board, but it was to no avail as East Forsyth kept their foot on the gas.  The Ravens took home the victory by the score of 15-10 to stay undefeated at 6-0.

East Forsyth head coach Kim Conrad says it feels awesome to stay undefeated because of the hard work her team has put in.

“I think our team played well but there is always room for improvement,” Conrad said.  “They are coming along each game and I’m very proud of them.

Hanes head coach Brian Smith added, “We have improved a lot but we have had a couple of set-backs by random things that happen in middle school like field trips and clubs that you can’t really predict but I’m just really proud of their effort today and how far we have come so far this year.”
