Four area teams were in action in regional semifinal action Tuesday night.
Pella and Osky battled in Class 4A Region 4 and it was all Lady Dutch from start to finish. Oskaloosa held their own during the first set before slipping late to drop it 25-20. Pella would stroll through the next two sets as they found their footing. They would win the second set 25-14 and the third set 25-8.
Pella was led by Emily Holterhaus, who would get 19 kills to lead all players. Josie Bunnell had eight kills for Osky, who ends their season with a record of 13-21.
Pella moves into the Region 4 Final next Monday where they will face Bondurant-Farrar. Pella is 32-6 on the season and one of their losses came against Bondurant-Farrar in the B-F Tournament back on August 26th. That match will be in Pella on Monday, October 30th at 7 PM.
Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont hosted Davis County in a matchup between two South Central Conference teams in Class 3A Region 8. EBF had beaten DC in the regular season in both of their matchups without dropping a set, but Tuesday night was different. Davis County would pull off the road upset in four sets (25-21, 25-19, 23-25, 25-23). EBF’s season comes to an end with a record of 21-16.
Finally, Ottumwa went on the road and faced a tough Waukee squad and came up short in straight sets (25-10, 25-18, 25-10). Ottumwa finished their season with a 19-20 record.
