The teams met in Alexandria preparing for rugged district semifinal games.

The host Campbell County Camels (9-8-2) scored three times in the first half and made it stand in a 3-0 win over the Ryle Raiders (7-9), ending Ryle’s six-game winning streak in the process.

“We talked about it before the game and we talked about it halftime about how they were a hot team now,” said Dave Morris, Campbell County head coach. “We needed to come out and play aggressive from the start with intensity. That’s what we did.”

Jozie Holmes scored twice for Campbell County and Jillian Florimonte scored the other one. Emma Westlund and Valerie Stephens had assists.

“I think we did really well stepping in front of the (opponents) and connected well in the midfield so that helped,” said Taylor Maley, Campbell County midfielder. “We’ve been on a good run and this game, especially it being senior night, really boosted our confidence.”

Campbell County outshot Ryle, 11-3. Ryle goalkeeper Maleah Lehmkuhl made eight saves and Morgan Roomes made three for the Camels playing in the second half.

Campbell County plays host to Simon Kenton (11-9) on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. Ryle plays at Bishop Brossart (10-6-1) at the same time.

The Raiders won their eighth straight in non-region action.

Ryle (17-9) had 39 kills, 53 digs, seven aces and 30 assists in the win. Kiana Dinn had 13 kills and eight assists to lead the way with Olivia Karlosky recording nine digs and two aces surpassing 500 digs and 100 aces for her career. Abby Lester and Karsyn Griffin had seven kills each. Alexis Woolf had 12 digs and three aces and Griffin had 11 digs. Morgan Heater added a team-high 19 assists.

“We really spread out the offense,” said Tasha Lovins, Ryle head coach. “We also had a lot of digs, keeping the ball alive. We’re starting to get in our groove in a way.”

Ryle had the challenge of facing Scott power hitters Milyn Minor and Brooklyn Helm. They had seven kills each with senior Brooke Balsley recording six.

“They have great shot selection,” Karlosky said of defending Minor and Helm. “They can see the court really well. They just put it where defenders are not, which makes it difficult. Our blockers did a great job of picking up certain sections of the court so that our defense can move around those sections and pick up everything else.”

Scott (15-12) had 23 kills, four aces, 16 blocks, 21 assists and 29 digs. Morgan Justice had four solo and four assisted blocks with Payton Grigsby recording four assisted blocks. Ryann Grigsby led Scott with 19 assists and seven digs and Elise Manhardt had 10 digs.

Ryle plays host to Holy Cross (21-7) on Tuesday at 7 p.m. Scott plays at Campbell County (11-11) in a key 37th District game Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
