Miner drop region game to DT, go 6-3 at weekend tourney

The Miners started last week with a tough, tough loss. The Miners entered their big game with Dickinson Trinity needing a win, they  had lost to two other region 7 contenders in Beach and Hazen. A win could have put them on track to get back into the race for a top four spot in the region, but it just didn’t happen. The Miners lost 3-1 (19-25, 25-11, 25-18, 28-26.
The first set was back and forth with a lot of ties. There were seven ties in the set the last one at 18-18. The Miners scored the straight after the ace capped by a Cassie Schutt ace. The quick spurt made Dickinson Trinity call timeout. The Miners scored again, then lost the ball to a side out but that was the last score for Trinity. Delaney Johansen ended the game with a three-point rally, capped by an ace.
