Burns sweeps Vikings in three

Posted Saturday September 13, 2008

UMATILLA - The Burns Highlanders (3A Eastern Oregon League) traveled to Umatilla (3A Eastern Oregon League) on Saturday for volleyball action. Burns won all three 25-12, 25-6, 25-12.

Umatilla started the first set pretty well. The Vikings were tied with the Highlanders 5-5. From that point on the Highlanders outscored the Vikings 12 to 2 to take a 17-7 lead just past the midway point of the game. The strong front line and good serves by the Highlanders were too much for the Vikings to counter.

Umatilla showed some nice play making in the first and third sets they just couldn't overcome the control that Burns showed in their shot making.
