Omak muzzles Okanogan

Brewster ready for postseason

OKANOGAN – Omak turned back Okanogan in a tight first set then cruised to a 3-0 victory in a Caribou Trail League match Oct. 29.

The Pioneers, in their final match of the regular season,l won 25-23, 25-11 and 25-11.

“We started out strong and were able to build a nice lead in each set,” Omak coach Brittney Richter said. “We did lose a little focus in the first game and gave Okanogan too many points off of our serving errors.”

Omak charged to an early lead in the opening set, 8-1, before Okanogan clawed its way back, eventually tying the game 20-20 on an ace service by Amanda Erks.

The game was tied at 22-22 and 23-23 before Omak got an outside kill followed by an inside kill.

“We came out and played with a lot of emotion in game one and had a number of chances to win,” Okanogan coach Michelle Daling said. “To Omak’s credit they were able to make enough plays to hold us off and then really dominated game two and three.”

The regular season wrapped up Saturday with Cashmere at Tonasket, Okanogan at Quincy and Brewster at Chelan on Saturday, Nov. 2.

Postseason starts Tuesday, Nov. 5, at Cascade with CTL No. 4 taking on CTL No. 3 at 5 p.m. and CTL No. 5 taking on CTL No. 2 at 7 p.m. in loser out games.

Bi-disrict starts Saturday, Nov. 9, at Cascade for three berths to state.
