MILFORD \u2014 There were no visions of vicious RHAM hitters or precise setters in the minds of the Jonathan Law volleyball players as they went into attack mode against Woodland Regional in a Class M quarterfinal game last Friday night. The mission on the minds of the Eagles was to defeat a well-balanced Hawks\u2019 team, then think about moving on and the possible matchup for the third straight year RHAM, another regional high school covering the towns of Hebron, Andover and Marlboro. It took a little more than expected, but fourth-seeded Law downed its pesky opponent, 3-1, and the Eagles will indeed get another chance to meet RHAM. Losers in last year\u2019s final and defeated in the semifinals the previous season, Law met RHAM, the two-time defending M champs last night in Middletown, after press time. The fifth-seeded Eagles (21-2) breezed through Games 1 and 2 by respective scores of 25-12 and 25-16 against the Hawks. That\u2019s when Woodland coach Jim Amato implemented a few changes. It worked. Woodland won the third game, 25-23, then battled hard in Game 4 before falling, 25-22. The Hawks (20-3) fell behind early in Game 3, trailing 3-2, after a Leigh Hunt kill. They charged back, holding the lead all the way up before losing it at 22-21 when junior Caitlin Stapleton blocked a shot. \u201cWe got a little down and got lazy,\u201d said Law senior outside hitter Casey Dulin, whose 26 kills led the way. \u201cThey began digging everything. It showed us that we have to play our best at all times.\u201d The front line hitting trio of Dulin, Stapleton (11 kills) and junior Meaghan Abbott (12 kills) proved to be too much for Woodland. \u201cWe changed things up and tried to find a way to neutralize their offensive game,\u201d Amato said. \u201cIt\u2019s something we do well. We have made a habit of coming back all season long. \u201cLaw was a team that wasn\u2019t going to fade. We needed to put them away. Unfortunately, we couldn\u2019t.\u201d Law coach Stacy Loch said: \u201cWe have to expect teams to play that way against us. After all, this is the quarterfinal round of a state tournament, not a regular-season game. My team has got to understand that. \u201cI think we started to get down just a bit mentally. That\u2019s when you have to step it up. Keep playing technically sound. You\u2019re constantly learning in volleyball.\u201d Sophomore setter Jackie Kochiss had 43 assists for the Eagles. On the defensive side, Shayna Calandro had 19 digs, Abbott added 18 and Amanda Keator had 16. For Woodland, Erika Barnett had 10 blocks, Stephanie Badale added six kills and 14 digs and Jessica Patrizi had 21 assists.
