The Belton Tiger JV Volleyball team hosted East View’s JV squad at Tiger Gym on Tuesday evening.

The Tigers were able to shrug off slow early starts to defeat the Patriots handily.

The scores of the contest were 25-11 and 25-15.

Belton and East View traded leads through the early going before the Tigers, down 4-3, went on 21-7 spurt. Bella Bustos, Karly Hansen and Gabrielle Benson picked up kills, while Benson and Hansen each picked up service aces. Sophie Broom’s attack towards the latter part of the game helped give the Tigers the opening set by 14 points.

The second game saw the teams trade the lead twice before Benson’s service, Hansen’s kill, attack and block, and Jayla Williams’ block fueled a 6-0 run.

East View closed the game with four points, 10-6. Belton closed out the match on a 15-9 clip, with Broom lowering the boom with a kill to end the game.

Belton hosts Stony Point on Friday at Tiger Gym.
