“Dover came out of the gate and really put constant pressure on us,” the Cape Tyler Coupe coach said. “They were an incredibly physical team with heavy arms from the middle and bowling. The first set was almost a washout for us – we were off the pace. Sets two and three I was happy with our game. We served aggressively and did our best to respond to their shots. I thought Kali had a brilliant game. It was the most committed we’ve seen from her both defensively and offensively. We need to continue with this effort and tighten the rest of the season.Things are not going to get better in the last few weeks, and we have to get to work.
