BELLEVILLE, NJ - Coming off of a rather unimpressive win in the Essex County finals against Belleville, the Livingston Lancers took on the same team one day later, on Wednesday afternoon, in a regular season match. After being challenged by the upstart 9-6 Buccaneers, Livingston attempted to rebound from their less-than-stellar performance the previous day.

Livingston started out in a similar fashion as the night prior, as a 6-2 lead was quickly erased by Belleville. Trying to ignite the team and build a lead, Livingston's Meuvz Vincent powered home a kill. It appeared to wake up his teammates, as the Lancers reeled off three straight points. Shenyan Wang's passing error forced Billy Williams off of the court and the senior OH was unable to retrieve the pass.

Livingston quickly got back serve to maintain the three-point lead. Unfortunately for the Lancers, Belleville crept back to within a point and soon took the lead. Livingston would have none of that, as a Jake Delman kill coupled with a handful of Belleville net violations gave the Lancers a three-point lead. The back and forth pace continued with a Buccaneers' sideout and another kill that forced Livingston's Coach Partelow to take a timeout. The timeout calmed the Lancers just in time, as Justin Delman finished serving the game in route to a 25-20 win for Livingston.

The teams split the first four points in the second game, as neither team stepped forward to dominate the early going. As Belleville's star OH started to cool off, the Lancers built a lead. Livingston's front line woke up, gaining multiple stuffs en route to a 20-10 lead. Williams came alive in the second game, fueling the ten-point run. The Buccaneers took a timeout as the match slipped away from their side. Belleville staved off elimination for two points, but that was as close as they would come. Livingston woke up in the second game to romp 25-13.

The key to the awakening in the second game was at the net, the Lancer middles believed. "We really stepped up and attacked the net. It was crucial to continue to pound the middles from the other team, as we worked them over well in previous wins against Bellevile," Vincent commented.

The Lancers continue their 5 games in 5 days run today at Barringer.
