Dow soccer wins big, CBA volleyball rallies to victory

Dow High’s Jack Wolohan and Jonah Dahn both scored twice on Friday to lead the Chargers to a 9-1 win over St. Johns in nonleague boys’ soccer. Isaac Skinner, Porter Baker, Alex Futter, and River Penn also scored for the Chargers, who improve to 3-0-0 and will head to Grand Blanc on Wednesday to open their Saginaw Valley League schedule.”I’m happy with our play right now, and this group continues to improve every time they are together,” said Dow coach Drew Emrich. “I know they are ready to start conference (play), and they know the challenge ahead (against Grand Blanc).”



Calvary Baptist Academy rallied from behind twice to beat Bay City All Saints 23-25, 25-17, 27-29, 25-11, 15-6 in volleyball on Saturday. A day earlier, the Kings beat Genesee Christian 25-18, 25-21, 30-32, 19-25, 16-4, then lost to host Bad Axe 25-7, 25-18, 25-15 in a triangular.

“After a really late night of volleyball last night, we started out very sluggish this morning,” CBA coach Danelle Dickerson said of Saturday’s match. “Bay City All Saints played super scrappy, and there were many times early in the matches when we were just caught watching and reacting very slowly. We had to adapt to their style of play so we could get our offense working for us.

“It was a relief to play really well in games four and five to finish out the game and walk away with the win,” she added.

Caitlyn Dickerson paced the Kings with 15 kills and 11 digs, while Tori Ginac had seven kills, Angelina Gorman had 11 aces and eight digs, and Jenna Szilagyi finished with 28 assists.

In the win over Genesee Christian, Dickerson had 14 kills, 16 digs, and four aces, while Emma Schmidt had seven kills, six digs, and four aces, Gorman had 12 digs, and Szilagyi doled out 25 assists.

In the loss to Bad Axe, Schmidt had five kills and Szilagyi 10 assists.
