Ranchers, Maroons advance in District 16 Tournament

Kenmare – The #2 seeded Powers Lake Ranchers would ultimately prevail in their opening round match-up with the #7 seeded Tioga Pirates, but they would receive some push-back.

Tioga jumped out to a 9-5 lead in the first set but the Ranchers went on a 20-3 run to close out the first set.

The second set was a bit more dramatic. The Pirates hopped out to another early lead but this time they were able to hold on a little bit longer. Tioga held a 22-21 lead and looked like they might steal a set from the Ranchers before Sydney Titus came up with a block to tie it up.  She would slam home a kill on their next possession to take a lead, a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

Powers Lake will take on the Divide Country Maroons at 7 p.m.
