Not even a power outage could spoil Radnor’s home volleyball match against Chichester Tuesday.
A downed tree in the area forced the Raiders and Eagles to play a portion of their nonleague match in relative darkness. A faint light shone through the high windows inside the Radnor gymnasium, good enough for both teams to play on.
Buoyed by Carleigh Goldstein’s seven aces, 25 assists and two kills, Radnor defeated Chi, 3-1 (25-12, 25-6, 17-25, 27-25). Grayce Henderson added nine kills and two aces, while Becca Goldberg posted six aces and seven kills for the Raiders. The defense was led by juniors Sammy Scannapieco (14 digs, three aces) and Erica DiCarlo (10 digs).
Upper Darby 3, Bensalem 2 >> The Royals overcame a two-set deficit to win 13-25, 19-25, 25-16, 25-17, 15-10. Sophomore Rylee Shanahan totaled six kills and 37 digs, while classmate Alison Ascareggi tallied six kills and five blocks. Sophomore Tara Gilligan set up her teammates with 18 assists.
