BUHACH COLONY 3, MERCED 1
Rachel Andrews led the way with 18 kills, but the win was costly for Buhach Colony. Middleblocker Sarah Bell injured her foot when she came down on a Merced player's foot at the net in the first game.
"It's a huge blow," Buhach Colony coach Michelle Osmer said. "It could mean the season at this point because you can't replace a middle like that. We've got a big game on Monday against Golden Valley. I have to go to 'Plan B' which I didn't have."
Rebecca Garitano paced Merced (1-2 CCC) with 23 kills and Summer Sanchez had 38 assists.
