Central started off with a point but had 3 serve errors. They battled to 15-12 lead. Mitch Greiner had a big kill to close the gap to 1 but Central’s Mike Michelau had a big kill and CHS moved to a 23 -20 lead. Michelau closed out the game with two service winners.

UPDATE 8:41 p.m. — The second set was a seesaw battle early with Horlick opening a lead of 11-8 that caused Central to call time out. After the TO, CHS came back to go to a 16-15 lead on libero Jake Stetson serving to the lead. Then Caleb Mobile took over serv ing 4 service winners and Michelau had the final kill to seal a Central 25-19 win.

UPDATE 9:11 p.m. — In the third set CHS  jumped out to an early 10-6 lead only to give it back on strong play by Horlick and s0me sloppy play by Central eventually to trail 17-16. CHS came back on two service winners by Michelau and two kills by Mobile to go up 21-20. Central moved to a 24-20 lead on Stetson serving but then three bad passes had them at 24-23. Central called a time out to halt the momentum and it worked to perfection with the next serve sailing long to provide the 25 – 23 margin.

When asked about his thoughts on the win, Coach Wayne Schultz said: “We played a little sloppy in the third game but Mike and Caleb can put the ball down when we needed it.”
