There will be some added festivities when Parkview Baptist hosts Brusly High for a crucial Division III, District 4 volleyball contest at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
It will be PBS’ “Pink Game” promoting Breast Cancer Awareness. Under the circumstances, it might also be appropriate for the two teams to introduce themselves to each other before the action begins.
Parkview (19-5, 6-0) swept Brusly 3-0 in their first meeting and the Panthers (17-7, 6-1) definitely have something to prove.
“It’s one thing to have the other team take you out of your game, but it’s totally different when you take yourself out of it,” Brusly coach Karen Wooley said. “We had 21 service errors and really didn’t play the way we’re capable of.
“May the best team win, but you have to put up a fight. Hopefully, we’ll get the chance to show what we can do.”
Both teams expect a playoff-type atmosphere for one of several key district match-ups that are scheduled for Week 7 of the regular season. Ascension Catholic hosts St. John-Plaquemine also at 6 p.m. Tuesday in Donaldsonville for a key Division V, District 3 match-up. ACHS took a five-set victory that ended with a 16-14 score in the final set during the first round of district play.
Parkview coach Becky Madden said her team expects to see a different Brusly team this time around. Madden said the Eagles need to play to their strengths in order to be successful.
“One of the things we do very well is transition from defense into the attack,” Madden said. “We’ve talked about it and our players expect a different team than the one we played last time.”
