The tough and talented Port Washington volleyball team defeated Hicksville at an away game this past Friday in all three sets.
With strong returning players who also play on club teams year round, the Port Washington team plays with a certain level of chemistry. Megan Murphy and Kelly Nardone led the way with 12 assists and Mia Walker had six kills.
In the first set, Hicksville got off to a strong start, recording the first three points. Port Washington, however, scored 12 straight points which took the score from a narrow margin of 6-4 to 18-4. That, essentially, put the match to rest prematurely. Port took that match by the score of 25-11.
The next match was ultra-competitive. The two teams exchanged points the entire time. The score stood at 11-11 and the Comets were playing sharp and aggressive. The Port Vikings clung on to a 15-14 lead, but ultimately broke the game open and won 25-16.
The third game was the most lopsided of the evening. Port took a commanding 9-0 lead and never looked back. They won that match by the score of 25-7 to move to 6-2 on the year and dropped Hicksville to 0-9.
