Pirates blank Comets 3-0

Published 9:24am Wednesday, September 12, 2012

The Verndale Pirates treated the Hillcrest gymnasium the way a real swashbuckler would, by pillaging a three set victory (25-8, 25-19, 25-4) from the Hillcrest Comets in their home opener Tuesday evening.

Kelsey Nersten led the Comet defense with six blocks, while Maddie Veum led the offensive attack for Hillcrest with 10 kills.

The Comets look to improve as they host the Battle Lake Battlers Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
