Early Parshall lead evaporates

Early Parshall lead evaporates
Trinity Christian comes from behind to win 3 straight

Nicole Packineau was the catalyst, Carissa Severance the “killer” and Destiny Steele wrapped up the package in Parshall’s District 15 volleyball match against Trinity Christian.
The match started out like a basic pitching scenario in a baseball game. Parshall took an early lead behind Packineau and after a convincing slam to the Trinity Christian floor, Parshall was up 5-1.
That’s when Severance took control and “set up” the game for the Lady Braves. With Parshall leading 8-2, Severance delivered what can only be described as a curve ball that fooled all the Trinity players to give Parshall a 9-3 lead. Two impressive kills later, and Parshall was up 16-6 and well in control.
After a Trinity time out, the Crusaders chipped away and cut into the Parshall lead. That’s when coach Rebecca Kollman went to the “bullpen” and brought in Steele, the closer.
With a 22-19 lead, Steele essentially duplicated what Packineau started slamming the door on the Crusaders with an impressive kill and allowing the Lady Braves to coast to the 25-22 win.
