After dropping the first to sets 25-14, 25-14, the Lady Bearcats clawed their way back by winning the third set 21-25 and set four 16-25 to force a fifth and final set.

“It was a roller coaster Match once we hit game 3,” Harbor Beach coach Stephanie Weiss said. “Ubly had some strong servers who took over, and we couldn’t get more than our side out point against any of them.”

Ubly jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the fifth set. Then Harbor Beach’s Ali Guza served nine straight points.

“That was a huge turning point with our attitudes and energy,” Weiss said. “It’s what we needed to finish the game strong. Ubly is very scrappy and picks up everything on defense.”

Harbor Beach won the final set 15-13 and went home with the win. Jenna Guza 11 kills 8 digs, Makayla Roberts 10 kills, 2 blocks, Amber Pleiness 9 kills, 26 digs Ali Guza 7 kills, 20 digs; Kirsten Stein 18 assists, 9 digs, Grace Weber 14 assists, 10 digs. Kathy Ocomen 12 digs, Claire Woodke 8 digs.
