By TIM HANSON

The Trojans are currently tied with Underwood for second place in District play with a 3-1 record after a 3-0 sweep of the Wilton/Wing Miners Tuesday night.

The Trojans will battle the Comets from Underwood Tuesday Oct. 21st in Underwood to determine who stays in second place and who drops to third place.

Center/Stanton stands on top in District 10.

The Trojans have just two other matches left in the regular season: Oct. 28 at home with Standing Rock and Oct. 30 at Flasher.

Katelynn Presser led the Trojans with eight kills and 13 digs. Madison Kurle contributed seven aces and 12 digs and Zoe Smalls dished out 28 assists.

The Miners were led by Paige Hausauer and Mckenzie Thorson with seven kills each. Raylee Backman tallied 24 digs.

The Trojans roared to an 8-0 lead to start the first set. The three offensive points for the Trojans came on kills from Tasha Williams and Tatum Fylling.

The Trojans stretched their lead to 22-10 after three aces from Madison Kurle and a kill from Katelynn Presser. A tip and a point from Fylling put the score at 23-10.

The Miners gave up the next points on errors to give the Trojans the win 25-10.

Fylling got the Trojans on the scoreboard first to start the second set with a block, but errors on both teams tied the set at 5.

From there, the Trojans held a slight edge until back-to-back kills from Paige Hausauer put the Miners in front 14-13.

A couple of missed kills from the Trojans and kills from Miners Karlee Arnold, Hausauer and Relissa Backman gave the Miners an 18-14 lead.

An ace from Fylling, along with a couple of missed kills from the Miners, cut the Miners’ lead to 19-18. An ace from Williams tied the set at 19.

Again, errors on both teams would run the score to 23-22 Miners.

A kill from Presser tied the set at 23.
