The match was what ESPN might deem an “instant classic” as the two teams fought for survival through a grueling, pressure-packed five sets, and in the end it was the Lady Indians who survived and advanced, downing New Boston in the full five sets, 20-25, 25-23, 25-22, 19-25, 15-12.On the court last Thursday night were two teams with contrasting styles who had met in the regular season with the Lady Indians winning in four sets. The Lady Tigers brought the power last week, securing more than 40 kills in the match against the smaller and athletic Lady Indians, who just seemed to be able to make the big plays when they needed them in the win.“We felt like we were well-prepared but this was a different New Boston team than we saw earlier,” said Peebles head coach Rachel Sims in her postgame radio interview. “After the first set, our girls realized they had to change a few things which is tough in mid-game situations. They really hit the lines tonight and made us adjust our back row. We did way too much tipping the ball tonight and I kept telling them to just hit the ball.”It was the Lady Indians who fired the first punch in the first set, getting a string of serves from Harlee Wilkinson that gave them a quick 8-3 advantage. New Boston battled back, getting kills from Lexus Oiler and Shelby Easter to draw within 13-10 and after the next side pout went the way of the home team, the Lady Tigers reeled off five of the next seven points, accentuated with an Oiler kill, to cut the Peebles lead to 16-15.After the next two points went to the Lady Indians, the visitors caught fire behind the serves of Taylen Hickman, and claimed 10 of the final 12 points of a first set that went to New Boston by the final count of 25-23.Down one set, the Lady Indians came out a bit flat in the second set, falling behind 10-3, before the light came on and the momentum shifted as it does so often in volleyball matches. Trailing 12-6, Peebles sent Hope Brown to the service line and she came through with five straight, including two aces, to tie the set at 12 apiece. With the large contingent of Peebles fans coming to life, the Lady Indians did the same, using kills from Jacey Justice and Christian Reed and the serves of Taylor Cluxton to forge ahead 24-19. After the Lady Tigers bounced back with four in a row to pull within one, a kill by Brown sewed up the second set for Peebles, 25-23, to tie the match at one each.As the intensity revved up, the two teams traded runs in the third set, Peebles going up 4-1, New Boston tying the score at 4 and then racing ahead 7-6 on a Hickman kill. Back came the Lady Indians, using a trio of Justice service points and a Reed kill to go on top 13-12, only to see the Lady Tigers grab the lead back at 15-14, but the Lady Indians answered that with a side out and four straight service points from Wilkinson to lead 19-15.Another trio of serves, this time by Reed, gave the home side a 23-20 advantage and the final point of the set came on a Justice kill as the Lady Indians took set three 25-22 and led the match 2-1.With the proverbial backs to the wall, the Lady Tigers went to the power game to stay alive, scattering 10 kills throughout the fourth set to win it 25-19 and set up the fifth and decisive set of a thrilling tournament match up.Fifth sets in a volleyball match are always tension-filled, even more so when the season is one the line. This night’s fifth set was nip and tuck all the way with the Lady Indians taking the first big lead at 8-4 with Wilkinson again at the service line. The resilient New Boston squad clawed their way back, getting a kill from Mackenzie Whitley to cut the Peebles lead to just 10-9. At this point, the two teams traded points with Peebles keeping the slim lead until a Justice kill made it 13-11. The next point went to New Boston but on the next volley, an attempted kill by the Lady Tigers went into the net and when Reed slammed one home on the next point, it was celebration time in Peebles as the Lady Indians took the fifth set 15-12 and secured the sectional championship and a trip to the district tournament.“The momentum back and forth tonight was unreal,” said Coach Sims. “We got great passing from Madison Beekman and some great play from Taylor (Cluxton) and Hope (Brown). And you won’t find two better up front than Jacey (Justice) and Christian (Reed), they compliment each other so well.”That Division IV district tournament contest will be played at Jackson High School on Thursday, Oct. 24 as the now 16-7 Peebles squad will face off with number two seeded Racine Southern with a berth in the district finals on the line. The match is the second of the night and should begin somewhere around 7:30 p.m.Peebles’ Christian Reed, far right, goes airborne for the kill attempt in action from last week’s thrilling five-set sectional final match between the Lady Indians and the New Boston Lady Tigers. In a pressure-packed contest, Reed and the Lady Indians prevailed in five sets, winning the Division IV sectional title and advancing to the district tournament.
