WESLEY CHAPEL — What looked like a quick night for Sunlake became a much tougher task, but the Seahawks were up for it. Sunlake fought off an inspired mid-match surge by host Wiregrass Ranch to win 25-13, 25-10, 17-25, 26-24 Thursday.Sunlake shot to a 20-13 lead in the fourth game before the hosts tied it at 23, Courtney Rottum ending the best point of the match with a kill. Kelsey Riquelme (10 kills) answered for Sunlake (2-0) and the match ended on an error."That got pretty intense there at the end," said Sunlake senior Gianna Basulto, who led all players with 11 kills.Sunlake, a defending state semifinalist, had a scare at 8-6 when setter Colby Coats hurt her ankle in a net collision. She only missed one point and finished the final game with 12 of her 32 assists. Coats had her ankle wrapped after the match but should be fine as Sunlake has four days between matches.New Wiregrass coach Michelle Davis, who came from Freedom High, liked what she saw after a shaky first two games where only one Bulls player had multiple kills."I learned that we don't quit. I was very impressed with that," Davis said. Rottum and Alyson Clark had three kills each in the third game with the defense equaling its dig total from the first two combined (18).Riquelme had five of her kills in Game 1, matching the highest output of any Bull for the whole match. Cat Parbel had quite the stretch — two blocks and three kills — as the Seahawks scored the last seven points of the opener.Wiregrass (1-1) jumped up 3-1 in the second game before Sunlake responded with a 10-2 stretch where sophomore Camryn Gowing supplied three aces, Nelly Diaz later adding four straight in a game where Sunlake needed just five kills.But Austin Kopenski, Jackie Trudel, Caroline Eichelberger and Anna Olsen's defense sparked the Wiregrass comeback. Olsen and Kopenski combined for 11 digs in the final game. Rottum led with four blocks."We weren't expecting that," Basulto said. "But we came together, instead of getting mad at each other, and in the end that's why we won."Diaz had eight of her match-high 14 digs in the fourth and Parbel finished with eight kills for Sunlake. Riquelme added five blocks.
