JSerra girls volleyball burned through Dana Hills in a straight-set sweep, 25-11, 25-17, 25-23, on Wednesday, Aug. 24, at Dana Hills High School.
JSerra came out in dominant form in the first set, and after Dana Hills came out with some fight in the second set, the Lions turned it back on to control the second set with ease. JSerra went on a 14-3 run to lead by as many as nine points in the second set before taking it, 25-17.
JSerra got some reserves in for the third set, as the Lions and Dolphins traded points back and forth. After a 19-19 tie, JSerra pushed out to a 22-19 lead, and despite Dana Hills cutting the score back to within one, the Lions closed out the win, 25-23.
Wednesday’s match against Dana Hills was the second win for JSerra over the Dolphins in a week, after a two-set tournament sweep in the Tesoro Tournament last weekend.
JSerra (5-2) is next in action at Aliso Niguel on Tuesday, Aug. 30. Aliso Niguel beat the Lions in the Tesoro Tournament.
Dana Hills (1-5) next hosts Laguna Beach on Thursday, Aug. 25.
