"We showed great effort in the first set," said Warriors coach Randy Tiller. "We just need a little more from our hitters. I asked Kassidy Riportella to play all the way around, something she normally doesn't do.

"She did her best, even going up to block (Stela) Kukoc (daughter of ex-Bull Tony Kukoc). We served tougher. We passed better. We were able to run an offense. We'll learn from this match and get ready for Maine East (next Tuesday)."
