Wolves drop L-BF in three

ELY— The Coughlin sisters combined for 29 kills here Tuesday night as the Timberwolves overcame match-opening miscues to top Littlefork-Big Falls in straight sets.
“We struggled some with our serve-receive at the beginning of the match, but we were able to overcome that by the end of the first set,” said Ely Head Coach Andrea Thomas. Her team didn’t look back. After winning the first set 25-20, the Wolves cruised to 25-9 and 25-18 wins in the second and third sets. “We continued to have hard, consistent serving from multiple players,” said Thomas. “We were also able to speed up our offense due to good passing, which resulted in many girls getting kills.”
In fact, six Ely players notched kills on the night, including 15 for McKenna Coughlin, nine for Rachel Coughlin, five for Kate Coughlin and Raven Sainio, four for Madeline Kallberg, and three for Kellen Thomas. Meanwhile, setter Katrina Seliskar added 36 assists and two ace serves. McKenna Coughlin added two ace serves, while Rachel Coughlin added five digs and three aces to her stats for the night. Thomas also added two blocks and two ace serves.
“It was a great team effort,” said Coach Thomas.
The Wolves were set to host Cherry on Thursday, Oct. 22. They’ll travel to Silver Bay on Tuesday and will be back home to host Mesabi East on Thursday, Oct. 29. Varsity game times are set for 7 p.m.
