NEW MARKET-The Cloverdale Clovers (12-13) traveled to take on the Southmont Mounties (6-24) Tuesday night. The Clovers swept the Mounties.

Game one was a close contest between the two teams, but Cloverdale won game one and never looked back winning the next two sets in dominating fashion.

"We came out sharp and ready to play. They played better than they did Monday," head coach Erin Barry said.

The Mounties went on a run in the first set to make the score 20-16. The Clovers did not give up and would fight back to take the lead 21-20. Southmont called a timeout after giving up the lead. The timeout did not help in the Mounties favor as Cloverdale went on to finish game one 25-23.

The next game Southmont came out looking for revenge and take tie the match at one game apiece. The Mounties led until Cloverdale tied the game at 7-7. Cloverdale took over the game 9-9 and quickly made the score 15-9. Game two finished 25-13 in favor of the Clovers.

Once again Southmont would start strong winning the first point but, they never led again in the final game. The Mounties would fight back from being down 4-12 and trial by only three, 17-20. Cloverdale called a timeout to stop the momentum that Southmont was gaining. The third and final game ended 25-20.

"They had a couple really good hitters that we couldn't get a good read on in the last few games" Barry said.

Southmont is on a three game losing streak and look to right the ship Thursday when they take on the visiting Danville Warriors.

"Hopefully we can fix a few things, come out focused and get a win" Barry said.
