2A volleyball: Indian Rocks falls in four games

Class 2A Golden Eagles don't go down quietly

TAMPA — A mere two points from pushing its rival to a deciding fifth game, Indian Rocks Christian suffered a couple of defensive lapses and watched as Tampa Prep scored the match's last three points to post a 25-20, 21-25, 25-13, 25-23 Tuesday.

The win is the fourth this season for Tampa Prep (15-10) against Indian Rocks Christian (17-12)

"We fought hard and did what we had to do," said IRC coach Mark Foster. "This is the best we've played them all season. But you can't give up a lead like that to them. They are too good."

In Game 4 after a long volley, Tampa Prep secured the point and 15-7 lead. But the Eagles stormed back, outscoring Tampa Prep 16-7 to claim a 23-22 lead. But two unforced errors on Tampa Prep serves did in the Eagles, allowing Tampa Prep to come back and take the win.

Marisa Moralobo led the Golden Eagles with 13 kills and 10 digs. Michelle Brown had 14 digs from her libero position, and setter Rachael Jones had 25 assists.
