In meeting one of the top teams from 17-18 in the first league game , the Rams were up for the challenge. Playing with 3 exceptional rookies, the Rams showed great potential for the 18-19 season. In the first set, the Rams scored the first few points before Holland started to make a come back. Rallies were exciting with both teams aggressive on offense and tenacious on defense. The sets were close in play with the Hurricanes winning 3-0 (18, 16, 21) . Jillian Ferguson , Laura Smith and Maddie DeCoste showed poise and talent in their first Collegiate match. Not tall , but playing tall, all three will make an impact in the ACAA.
Holland has a strong returning team and no doubt will be challenging for a play-off spot again. The Rams hope to develop over the season to also make a play-off run.
The Rams next match is tomorrow , Sunday Oct 28 , when they host USA at 1 pm.
