PREP ROUNDUP: Lakeland sweeps Sandpoint

| September 23, 2022 1:15 AM


SANDPOINT — The Lakeland Hawks extended their winning streak to 10 straight matches with a 25-19, 25-23, 25-14 victory over the Sandpoint Bulldogs in Inland Empire League play Thursday night at Les Rogers Court.

Addie Raebel had 10 kills for Lakeland (15-6, 4-1 IEL). Ziya Munyer had nine kills and seven blocks, Kenna Simon nine kills and five blocks, Olivia Zazuetta 17 assists and three aces, Ella Terzulli 18 assists, Ellie Carlson 14 digs, Addie Hocking 12 digs.

“We started slow, but finished strong,” Lakeland coach Kelsie Badger said. “We’ve had some players step up the last couple of matches with Lila Kiefer out due to an ankle sprain. We made a lot of unforced errors, but battled back every time. Ziya Munyer had another big night, both with kills and blocks.”

Sandpoint is 1-8, 0-4.

“Lakeland has some pretty big hitters and a pretty good libero, so if we don’t serve tough and hit tough at them, they can do some damage,” Sandpoint coach Karen Alsager said.

Lakeland plays at the Linda Sheridan Classic today and Saturday in Spokane.

POST FALLS — Bryce Snow recorded a hat trick for the Timberwolves, who scored all five goals in a span of 18 minutes to beat the Trojans in an Inland Empire League match.

"We started the first-half strong on the attack," Lake City coach Kevin Jump said. "We established possession and had some quality shots on goal. Credit to Post Falls for having a stout defense and some great goalkeeping, because it took most of the first half until we scored. Our three seniors provided some excellent leadership, along with some outstanding play in the field."

“We had great possession and were moving the ball really well,” Post Falls coach John Mueller said. “It just came down to a simple error. A shot came in and bounced off a patch of grass and went in. They came in hard again after that and caught us trying to orient ourselves and were able to capitalize.”
