It was hard for Santa Clarita Christian girls volleyball head coach Darcy Brown to put the words together.

Two matches in a row, her team had to fight for five games.

On Saturday, in the CIF-Southern Section Division VAA quarterfinals, SCCS came up short in a 3-2 loss to Mammoth at Mammoth High School.

SCCS lost the first two games 25-23, 25-20, then won the next two 25-21, 25-20 before losing 17-15 in the final and deciding game.

Just two nights earlier, SCCS knocked off Coast Union in a thrilling second-round match.

“This season and this group of girls has showed me the fight and the determination that they’ve had all season long,” said an emotional Brown after the match.

SCCS (14-3) made the 280-mile trip to Mammoth and nearly knocked off a Mammoth Huskies team (22-9-3) that won the Desert Mountain League.

Not even Kylie Brown’s SCCS school-record 34 kills to go along with 22 digs in the match did the trick.

At one point, SCCS was up 13-9 in the fifth game and it appeared to score a point to take make the score 14-9 until senior Allie Acosta was called for reaching over the net.

Brown argued the call, but it went Mammoth’s way.

“In a game like this it totally changed the momentum,” she said.

Despite the call, Acosta finished with 13 kills and 12 blocks.

Abigail Walker added 10 blocks and six kills, Tiffany Shroyer had 17 digs and Madi Latch tacked on six aces and 10 digs.

With the loss, SCCS will lose six seniors, including Acosta and Latch.
