SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - A dominant performance through two sets led the Lady Vikings girls Volleyball team past the J.P. Stevens Hawks on Friday night in the first round of the GMC playoffs.

Even though South Brunswick put forth a complete effort, they did start out slowly.

"I think we started the game completely terrible," said ahead coach Kacy Kelly.  "It looked crazy, frantic and like people were just running around."

The Hawks got out to an 11-5 lead in the first set. 

Coach Kelly seemed as if she had seen enough and took her much-needed first timeout.

Immediately after the timeout, the Vikings defended a Hawks serve very well to earn the point and get the ball back. 

From here, senior Nina Trach got the Vikings on a bit of a comeback.

They tied the game up at 12 and Trach kept the rhythm going with her serves. 

South Brunswick ended up taking the first set 25-14.

"I think the timeout definitely helped us out," Kelly's said.  "We were able to bring our focus back and it helped us get on a bit of a run."

The Vikings came out in the second set and didn't even give J.P. Stevens a chance, jumping out to a 10-3 lead.

From there it was all downhill as the Vikings were in clear control of keeping the momentum to their advantage.

They went on to take the set 25-11 and the match 2-0.

South Brunswick now travels to Monroe for the second round of the GMC playoffs on Tuesday, Oct. 25.
