Colfax drops Bruins to stay in second place

Bear River’s bid to take control of second place in the Pioneer Valley League volleyball standings fell short Wednesday night in a five-game marathon match at rival Colfax.

The Bruins took the opening game 25-21, dropped the next two by the exact same score and then battled back for a 27-25 win in game four.

But in the fifth and deciding game, the host Falcons fought off the Lady Bruins for a 15-12 victory to seal the 3-2 win and maintain control of second place in the PVL.

Colfax improved to 20-11-1 overall and 7-2 in the PVL, while Bear River slipped to 26-13 overall and 6-3.

Sophomore Sara Schell drove home 16 kills on the night for Bear River, while junior Katie Tomkiewicz had 12 kills, while freshman Kirsten Periera and senior Christie Nat each had six kills.

Bear River returns to action in its regular-season finale at Center (0-20, 0-9) Monday, while Colfax closes out the regular-season at Lincoln (12-10, 4-6).

League-leading Placer (14-9, 7-1) finishes up at Foothill (11-10, 2-6) Monday.

First-round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV playoffs are slated to start Tuesday, Nov. 9.
