Last week was all about Thursday and Friday for the Beulah Miners. They were the two most important days of the Miners season and the Miners won. Home wins over Glen Ullin and Bowman gave the Miners an 8-3 mark in region play and an opening round Region 7 tournament bye. On Thursday night the Miners played host to Glen Ullin. The early goings of this match were a little bit of a shocker. Glen Ullin – a team with one region win – was playing Beulah tough. Neither team could gain separation until late in the match. Jamie Murschel, a junior hitter, tied the game at 14-14 with a kill. The Miners added three points to the lead making the score 17-14. But Glen Ullin ended the run with consecutive points from Michaela Gerving, a sophomore middle hitter. After Gerving’s streak ended with a serve out of bounds, the Miners built another three point lead – 20-17 – only to see Glen Ullin shrink it back down to one point, 20-19.
