HOWELL - The Class A volleyball regional semifinals played Tuesday at Howell saw both matches end in straight sets, as Novi defeated Walled Lake Central 25-12, 25-22, and 25-15, and Farmington Hills Mercy then defeated Brighton 25-20, 25-18 and 25-18.

The first match of the night saw the Vikings open in an eerily-similar manner as they did in last Friday's district final win against Walled Lake Northern.

Central started with a lopsided first-set loss both nights before then rebounding to play a very close second set.

The result in this match, however, was Novi being able to prevail in the second game and ultimately earn the sweep.

“Our game plan coming in was to play our game, to serve and pass tough,” Novi head coach Jennifer Cottrill said. “When we serve well and get a team out of their system, it makes it easier for us to defend them.”

Cottrill went on in regard to the Walled Lake Central squad, saying “They are a great team and they have had a lot of success this year.”

Vikings head coach Sarah Lindstrom said her team has played tough.

“These kids have played some of the best volleyball teams in the past three years and I am very proud of what they have accomplished.”

The Wildcats were led statistically by Abryanna Cannon with 19 kills, Erin O’Leary with 42 assists and Ally Cummings with 11 kills and 14 digs.

On the other side of the net, Kayla Guldan had 16 assists, eight digs and three kills, Carley Stevenson had 14 digs and Aysha Hood had six kills and eight digs.

In the second match of the evening, the Brighton Bulldogs kept things close against the Farmington Hills Mercy Marlins but Mercy was able to come out on top with the straight-set victory, in part due to its game plan.

“We were trying to control the pace of the game, to be successful with our serves and our placements and get them out of sync,” Mercy coach Loretta Vogel said.

Despite falling behind in the third set against Brighton, Mercy found a way to close out the match.

“I think in the third, we had three hitting errors to start with, we don’t like that and that was something that allowed them to get up by five points. We were patient and just played one point at a time and didn’t panic.”

Novi and Mercy will square off in the regional final at 7 p.m. Thursday at Howell.
