Lady Panthers' rally falls short against Illinois Lutheran
GARDNER — Gardner-South Wilmington junior middle blocker Breann Fisher says that the Lady Panthers played one of their best matches of the varsity girls volleyball season Tuesday night.
River Valley Conference rival Illinois Lutheran was slightly better than the Lady Panthers, though, knocking off the hosts 25-20, 21-25, 25-23 in semifinal action at the Class 1A Gardner-South Wilmington Regional. Illinois Lutheran will play Grant Park, a 25-23, 25-14 winner over Donovan in Tuesday's other semifinal, in the championship match Thursday.
GSW was down 12-7 at one point in the second game before rallying to win. Illinois Lutheran returned the favor in the third, erasing a 23-21 Lady Panther lead with a Kathy Wilkening sideout kill and three straight Caroline Kuether service points to steal the match.
