Northside Christian’s late-season slide took it right off the playoff cliff Tuesday night as the Mustangs fell at Fort Myers Evangelical Christian 21-25, 25-22, 25-23, 25-15 in a Class 2A region quarterfinal.

Evangelical (22-5) avenged postseason losses to the Mustangs (16-9) in each of the past two seasons.

Senior Jennica Mullins dominated the middle for the Mustangs, who lost for the fifth time in the past two weeks. She had 10 kills and six blocks, including three straight blocks that almost turned a 24-20 Game 3 deficit into a win for her team.

“We really had to take advantage when she was in their back row,” Evangelical coach Liz Ferguson said.

In the opening game, the Sentinels forced seven ties before a trio of Mullins kills and a Mullins ace gave the Mustangs a 22-19 advantage. Northside had just nine kills in that set, whereas Evangelical gave away 11 points on penalties and unforced errors.

“That game was kind of a warmup,” Sentinels senior Andrea Lovell said.
