Rematch goes to Minooka
JOLIET — It was re-match of last year’s regional final Thursday night between the Minooka Indians and the Bradley-Bourbonnais Boilermakers, and it lived up to all the expectations coming in. Just like last year, though, the Indians were able to prevail, as they defeated the Boilers in a 25-13, 29-27 two-set thriller, giving Minooka its third straight regional title.
Both teams came out on fire early, exchanging points back and forth, before the Indians scored four points in a row to go up 9-5 early. After it went to 14-11, Minooka closed out strong, going on an 11-2 run to finish off the Boilers 25-13. Senior Bailey Sachtleben dominated in Game 1 for the Indians, recording five kills in the opening-game victory.
“I had an adrenaline rush for sure in Game 1,” Sachtleben said, who led the team overall with eight kills on the night. “We were told to not tip until we needed to, so I just decided to start pounding away at the ball and giving it my all.”
