From Staff Reports:

It wasn’t the result Marshall coach Sang Lee wanted Friday afternoon when his Eagles’ program went on the road to take on third-place Rosemead.

But it sure as heck was the effort he wanted out of his athletes.

Rosemead had to scratch and crawl their way to victory, but it took five competitive games to do so.

The Panthers earned the Mission Valley League win via scores of 21-25, 25-14, 29-31, 25-18 and 15-12.

Marshall even held a 12-9 lead in the fifth set, but Rosemead was able to persevere on their senior night.

Sophomore setter Malia Wilson had a team-high 15 digs, 14 assists, and 4 aces.

Senior outside hitter Risejah Velasco had 12 digs, 6 kills, and 1 ace.

Freshman middle blocker Kelaiyah Johnston finished with a team-high 9 kills.

Junior middle blocker Samia Dinniene added 8 kills.

Sophomore setter Bora Lim contributed 11 digs and 11 assists.

And senior libero North Steinbacher added 8 digs.

Marshall will finish its 2018 season on Wednesday when they host Arroyo at 3:15.

Quotable:

Marshall coach Sang Lee: “It was a very painful loss. Our girls truly gave everything they had in this match. We are a very young team with only two seniors. We have multiple sophomores and a freshman starting on our squad. This is our third fifth-set loss of the season. As we mature as a team and encounter more pressure situations, our girls will learn to overcome their nerves to close out close matches like this one. We have a chance to redeem ourselves in our last match on our Senior Night against Arroyo. We lost to them last time in five sets. Hopefully, we can mature quickly.”

Marshall senior outside hitter Risejah Velasco: “We should’ve beat them.”

Records: Marshall (9-14 overall, 4-7 in league); Rosemead (8-11, 6-4)
