Plays like aces and kills are known to shift the momentum of a game one way or the other. When those plays are consistently made by only one team, while the opposing team is consistently making errors, the pace of the game - and the game itself - will be decided by the playmaking team. South Hagerstown proved to be the playmakers as the fourth-seeded Rebels swept fifth-seeded Walkersville 25-5, 25-7, 25-14 in a Maryland Class 2A West quarterfinal Monday. South (11-5) will travel to take on top-seeded Liberty in the semifinals Wednesday.
