(Ashburn, Oct. 27, 2016) – The Broad Run Spartans made it tough on their visiting cross-town rival opponents, but the Stone Bridge Bulldogs came out victorious in a five-set showdown with scores of 25-11, 25-12, 21-25, 23-25 and 15-6. In their win, the Lady Bulldogs held fast to their 1st place Conference 14 tie with Briar Woods.
Broad Run junior Skylar Harrison and Stone Bridge sophomore Nicolle Foster both had 17 kills for the match. Stone Bridge senior Riley Gill led all with 7 aces and 28 digs.
Conference 14 rules state that a tie is broken with a coin toss. That toss also occurred earlier this evening at the Potomac Falls vs. Briar Woods match, and as luck would have it, the Bulldogs landed face up. Had the tie breaker been based on sets won/ lost, Stone Bridge would have won that as well, edging out Briar Woods by only a few sets with a 22-6 sets record versus the Falcons’ 21-8 record.
Conference play offs begin next with Broad Run (1-7) and Potomac Falls (1-7) matching up for a play-in on Monday, 10/31 at Broad Run. The winner of that match will advance to play the 1st place Bulldogs (7-1) on Tues. 11/1 at Stone Bridge. 3rd place Tuscarora (4-4) will face the 2nd place Falcons (7-1) at Briar Woods the same night.
