After a thrilling victory over Placer on Tuesday, the Bear River girls volleyball team had a bit of a let down Thursday, losing at Colfax in four sets, 25-16, 25-20, 20-25, 25-14.
“You could say it was due to fall break or we had a let down after Placer, but the truth is (Colfax) played better than us,” Bear River head coach Matt MacDonald said. “They wanted it more. They were hungry.”
In the loss, Bear River senior Kirsten Pereira led the team with 19 kills. Senior Teryn Rath added nine kills and sophomore setter Savannah Wirth led the Lady Bruins with 35 assists.
With the loss, Bear River is now 4-1 in Pioneer Valley League play and tied atop the league with Placer and Colfax, whom are also 4-1.
Bear River takes the court again Tuesday when it travels to face Center.
