MOORHEAD – Just call them the Avengers.
Less than two weeks after surrendering a 3-1 home loss to Moorhead, the Bemidji High School volleyball team traveled to the home of the Spuds and flipped the script with a 3-1 win on Tuesday.
The victory was the Lumberjacks’ second in as many years over Moorhead after failing to win any matches against the Spuds in the 2015-2020 seasons.
BHS (6-7) took the first set 25-20, then remained in command with a 25-18 victory in the second. Moorhead (4-8) avoided the sweep with a 25-23 triumph in set three, but the Jacks righted the ship with a 25-21 win in set four.
Mollie Rupp had 21 kills to pace the Lumberjacks, with Beth Bolte adding 16. Elizabeth Oster contributed 11 and had a .455 hitting percentage.
BHS posted a balanced defensive effort as well. Six players had double-digit digs: Adie Potratz (17), Bolte (14), Sammy Nistler (13), Margie Anderson (12), Jordan Pemberton (11) and Rupp (11).
Anderson primed the hitters with all 50 of the Jacks’ set assists, and Nistler had both Bemidji service aces.
The Lumberjacks return to the court against St. Cloud Tech at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, in St. Cloud.
