Carley Davis (22) and Emma Chapin (23) block a kill attempt by Elise Kilburg of Marquette Catholic. The Cardinals beat Marquette in two games at the Northeast Tournament Saturday, Oct. 4.

The Maquoketa Cardinals volleyball team got off to a slow start last week, losing to the Class 4A 4th-ranked Marion Wolves 3-0 at Marion Sept. 28. 

But on Saturday at the Northeast Invitational, the girls turned it around and went 4-2 on the day. The two losses were to two ranked teams — Davenport Assumption and Lisbon. The Cardinals won 2-0 against Calamus-Wheatland, Marquette Catholic, Durant, and Prince of Peace. 

The Cardinals made Lisbon work for every point. 

In game one the score was tied at 17-17 before the Lions won 21-18. In game two the Cardinals led 17-13. Lisbon closed the gap to 20-18 but the Cardinals held on to win game 21-19. 

The Cardinals gave the Lions a scare but in the third game tiebreaker, the Cardinals fell behind 0-9 before getting on the board. Coach Nicole Snyder called a time out with her team trailing 2-12 to try and settle her team. The Cardinals fought but fell 8-15 to Class 1A 4th-ranked Lisbon.

The Cardinals (8-17) are accustomed to playing ranked teams; every team in the WaMaC East is ranked except Solon and Maquoketa.  

The Cards played Solon in Maquoketa Tuesday, then head to the Durant Tournament Saturday, Oct. 9, for an 11 a.m. match with the host school.
