Emmaus would have an unexpected third bout with Grace this time on a neutral ground; Mt. Mary. Grace was not messing around as they came out strong in Set 1 taking it 19-25. Grace had just come off a huge win against Mt. Mary taking some games to scores of 33-31 so there was no question they were warmed up and ready to go. Emmaus then went on to take games 2 and 3 by scores of 26-24 and 25-17. At this point it looked as if Emmaus would take another before 5 games but Grace had much to say about this. They took an early lead once again and finished out the set with authority with a score of 25-17. This would bring these two teams to the first game 5 of all their meetings this year. Grace jumped to a 8-4 lead and things were not looking good for the Lady Eagles. Statistically speaking the team to reach 8 points first would run away with the match but today things went a little differently. Emmaus then went on a 11-4 run to close out an up and downhill battle with Grace. “First of all Grace did an awesome job this weekend playing without a couple of their starters as there was not one easy win all weekend. And once again I am extremely impressed with how Lady Eagles have come together under a new setter and lineup at such a critical time of the year, “responded Coach Strautmann.
