By Jeremy McDonald


TURNER, Ore.–  Cascade’s Roman Farrell had a nice little serving streak going in the second set of West Salem’s 25-13, 20-25, 25-17, 25-13 win over the Cougars in some Boys Volleyball action Monday night.  His eleven-serve streak had helped turn an eight-point deficit into an 13-10 lead, giving the new Boys Volleyball program a boost in momentum that they rode for the remainder of the set.

Rebounding well after their first set woes as they carried it into the third set against their 6A opposition.  Winning the program’s first-ever set in the program’s first-ever match.

“I felt like it really helped the team get momentum abc and our energy back, it was pretty awesome.  Just moving forward, just getting better.  It felt really good and we really needed that game to get better all-around with our team, it was awesome,” Farrell said.

This game was the Titans first game of the season following a jamboree-like scrimmage entering the game as well as the second-year program out of Salem rebounded well in the third and fourth sets to complete the victory.  Forcing the inexperienced Cascade into making errors and bridging it into plays and kills of their own as they picked up the early season victory on the road at Cascade High School.

“That set brought down the energy and we had a talk with our coaches and we figured out that we needed to bring the energy back up and we did that.  It was fun to keep the energy up and come back to win those (two sets),” said West Salem’s Carter Parent. “Just working on the fundamentals and remembering to be calm.  We’re a scrappy team, but we need to slow things down and play at our own pace.”
