SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – After a lackluster performance against J. P. Stevens on Monday, the Lady Vikings volleyball team came back to beat the Piscataway Chiefs 2-0 on Wednesday.

“The girls did not play their game or level of volleyball, and brought very little energy to the game,” Coach Kacy Kelly said in an email Wednesday night. “I felt that they were intimidated and got out played by a good team.”

The Vikings lost to J.P. Stevens in two straight sets, 25-10 and 25-12.

There were no aces for the Vikings and scoring was led by Nina Trach with five and both Sarah Weeden and Kelly Matuszewski with four each.

The team turned around, however, beating the Piscataway Chiefs in two sets on Wednesday, 25-10 and 25-11.

The Chiefs could not put an ace on the board in the contest, and were no match for the Vikings offense.

Matuszewski had 14 points including four aces, followed by Jamie Klemas with 12 points including five aces.

Lindsay Szucs contributed 10 points with one ace and Weeden contributed seven including two aces in the victory.

“The varsity played phenomenally and were a thrill to watch,” Kelly said. “The girls developed chemistry quick in the game and carried in through to the end of the second match.”

The team is now 4-5 on the season, with Piscataway at 1-10.

J.P. Stevens is currently at 7-2 after defeating Colonia 2-1 Wednesday.
