"The girls came out really strong and played well together, which tends to be a difficult task when we're on the road, especially at J.P. Stevens," Kelly said.

South Brunswick would be tested a bit during the second set.

J.P. Stevens came back with a strong surge in an effort to push the game to later sets, but came up short as the Vikings closed the game out with a score of 25-21.

The Vikings got strong veteran support from senior middle blockers Jamie Klemas and Samantha Knehr each with three kills and one block each.

Along with Junior Kelly Matuszewski who added five kills, one dig and two aces.

"Overall, I am pleased to walk away from JP with a win.  I think the girls are finally starting to develop some chemistry and ability to play as a team," Kelly said.  "Back to back wins is preparing us for our next two games later this week."
