LA JARA — Over the weekend the Falcons played host for a trio of big games in the 3A Volleyball Intermountain League (IML). Alamosa (10-1) came away perfect knocking off both the host Falcons 3-2 and Montezuma-Cortez 3-0. Centauri (5-4) broke even after falling to Alamosa by defeating Montezuma-Cortez 3-1.

The main match of the day of interest to valley sports fans was the much-anticipated meeting of rivals Alamosa and Centauri. It would not disappoint.

The two squads shared point runs in the early going. Alamosa would go on a three-point rally and Centauri would answer.

The Moose would control the pace leading Centauri. An Alyssa Crowther kill would finish the set giving Alamosa the win at 25-20.

The Falcons answered right back in set number two.

Early on it was side-out for side-out to a 5-4 lead for Alamosa. Centauri went on a four-point run before Alamosa called a timeout. It would break up the run of momentum, but the Falcons were the only ones scoring during their time at the service line running out to a 25-13 win in set two.

Each squad would claim victories by narrow two-point margins in the sets three and four to even the match with two apiece and setting up a final frame.

The Falcons opened the final set with a 3-2 lead.

Alamosa quickly eclipsed the lead with kills from Jordan Mobbley, Emily DePriest and Terese Chavez.
The Falcon’s Tori Huffaker would end the rally forcing a side out but Alamosa kept the home team quiet maintaining the lead to the set’s 15-8 conclusion.

Alamosa followed that performance by blanking Montezuma-Cortez 3-0. In the final match of the day, Centauri also defeated Cortez to complete the triangular with a 1-1 record.

Alamosa will go home for another league game welcoming Monte Vista (1-8) to Alamosa High School on Tuesday the 24th at 6 p.m. Centauri will stay home all this week. On Thursday Centauri will be at home against Lamar (8-2), Saturday the Falcons will play host to Pagosa Springs (3-6).
