"Get your game face on."
That is the slogan that is found on the back of the warm-up T-shirts for the Middletown Knights' volleyball team.
The Knights were able to get their game face on and that helped them to pull out a close victory over the North Hagerstown Hubs, 25-20, 17-25, 27-25, 15-25 and 15-10 on Tuesday night in a Monocacy Valley Athletic League volleyball match.
The fifth game was tied at 3-3 before the Knights outscored the Hubs 12-7 the remainder of the contest.
Jill Martin served for the final three points and Allison Jarkey got a game-ending stuffed block to enable Middletown (2-1 overall, 1-0 MVAL) to seal its match victory over North Hagerstown (4-2 overall, 0-1 MVAL).
"We were able to pass better in the fifth game and we were able to get the serve on our side," Middletown coach Jaime Pryor said. "Those were the keys to our victory in the fifth game. This would make a nice matchup in November."
