Blazers battle from 2-0 deficit to beat Faith

The Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers roared back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat Faith Christian 3-2 Tuesday in a Mason-Dixon Christian Conference girls volleyball match.

Faith won the first two games 25-16 and 25-23 and appeared to be on the brink of victory before the Blazers (10-5, 7- 4 MDCC) earned a 25-22 victory in the third game. They then took the fourth 25-18 to send the match to the decisive fifth game, which they won 15-13.

For the Blazers, stat leaders were Regan Bard with 25 assists, Morgan Householder with eight kills and 10 digs, Emilee Beam with 13 kills, and Ryleigh Timmons with 24 digs and seven aces.

Also, Bard had three blocks and three digs, Olivia Russell had three aces, and Kerri Potteiger had eight digs.
