Tuesday, September 22, 2015 | 4:46 PM

The South Side Beaver girls volleyball team hosted Beaver County Christian in a Class-A non-conference match on Monday night. The Lady Rams used a strong start and the powerful arm of their senior leader to win the match 3-1 by scores of 25-16, 25-13, 23-25, 25-23.

South Side (2-2, 3-2) never trailed in either of the opening two sets of the match. The Lady Rams controlled the game, forcing the Lady Eagles into the hitting miscues.  Every time BCCS would close the gap, South Side would respond with two or three quick points to widen the gap. The balanced attack was led by senior Toni Yacoviello, who provided five kills in each of the first two sets.

The third set appeared to be the final one of the match, with the hosts gaining a 20-11 lead. However, the Lady Eagles scored on ten straight points to take the lead in the set. They would hold the lead and win the third set 25-23. Senior Emma Verrett had six of her team high 12 kills in the third set.

Momentum stayed with the visiting Eagles in the fourth set, which went back-and-forth. But in the end, the setting of McKenna Smith  and  Elaine Robertson and the strong arm of Yacoviello  put the match away. Yacoviello had nine of her match-high 23 kills in the fourth set.

The Lady Rams were also led in kills by Kristen Greenawald (7) and Amanda Glenn (6).Freshman Maggie Townsend had 9 kills for BCCS (2-2,2-3).
