COKATO – The Dassel-Cokato volleyball team came into their matchup looking for their first win of the season. Midway through the first half, it looked as if the Chargers had a chance to do just that. That all changed with big runs throughout the match by the Litchfield Dragons. In all three sets, Lithfield used big runs to lead them to a 3-0 (25-20, 25-12, 25-20) sweep over D-C Thursday night.
Looking to strike first, D-C got off to a nice start in set one. Kills from Lauren Abfalter and Zoe Verhey gave the Chargers a 19-16 lead. That lead would disappear in a hurry as Litchfield would close the set on a 6-0 run to steal set one.
Litchfield would carry that momentum over into set two. A 10-2 run gave the Dragons a 15-7 lead and there was so sign of slowing Litchfield down. The Dragons would close the set on a 10-5 run, taking a commanding 2-0 lead over the Chargers.
