The Valencia Vikings defeated the Saugus Centurions in a nail-biting five-game match by scores of 18-25, 25-14, 23-25, 25-23, 15-12.

Delaney Knudsen led the Vikings (13-5 overall, 5-1 Foothill League) with 24 kills and 14 assists. Lindsey Knudsen had 33 assists and four aces and Sierra Sanchez added 16 kills.

Valencia is tied for first in league with Hart.

“We are expecting to win, but there are no easy matches out there for us,” said Valencia head coach Ray Sanchez.

“Every single match is huge and any win is big. They (Saugus) certainly came out with a lot of energy and played well.”
Saugus (11-11, 2-4) was without its top two offensive players Hannah Nua and Makena Wasserman, but was led by Ashley Guthrie’s 34 assists and Amy Buffham’s 10 kills.

“Playing without our two big offensive weapons, our team rallied around itself,” said Saugus head coach Zach Ambrose.

Canyon 3, Golden Valley 1

Canyon dropped only one game on its way to a 23-25, 25-17, 25-20, 25-18 win over Golden Valley Tuesday night.  

Morgan Fay led the Cowboys with 12 kills and 22 digs and Robyn Underwood dished out 40 assists for the Cowboys (10-9-1, 2-4).

“We started building confidence with our hitting and we want to take that into the rest of the season,” said Canyon head coach Brandon Johnson. “We are looking for consistency.”

Canyon will now travel to West Ranch for its next match on Thursday. Golden Valley (4-12, 0-6) hosts Valencia today.

Faith Baptist 3, Trinity 0

Faith Baptist defeated Trinity in a three-game sweep, 25-16, 27-25, 25-17 Tuesday night.

Julia Howell led the Knights with eight kills and five solo blocks and Mae Humphreville added six aces for Trinity, which drops to 0-4 in the Heritage League and 2-6 overall.

“We were more consistent than we have been but we still need to hustle,” said Trinity head coach Alison Buchanan.

Trinity will now move on to play Bethel Christian in a non-league home match on Thursday.

Lancaster Baptist 3, SCCS 2

Santa Clarita Christian School took Lancaster Christian to five games but lost by scores of 22-25, 22-25, 25-21, 25-23 and 15-6.
