CUMBERLAND — It didn’t take long for the Greely High volleyball team to get back on track.

Two nights after defending Class A champion Cape Elizabeth won 3 of 4 sets against them, the Rangers took 3 of 4 sets against Falmouth, last fall’s Class A runner-up.

Thursday night’s win enabled Greely to jump over the Yachtsmen and move into fourth place in the Heal point standings.

The Rangers also avenged a season-opening loss at Falmouth.

“We did not play well the last time and we wanted to show them how well we can play,” said Kayley Cimino, an outside hitter who got four of her eight kills in the fourth set.

“In the other game, our defense wasn’t where it was supposed to be, but we fixed that and cleaned it up.”

The four-set scores were 25-16, 24-26, 25-20, 25-18.

The Rangers (7-3) came close to giving the Yachtsmen (6-3) a chance to play a winner-take-all fifth set.

“Every set over (in Falmouth) we gave them six or seven points on our serve,” Greely Coach Kelvin Hasch said.

“I thought that we were going to do that again in the last game tonight, but we were able to get things done.”

Thursday night, Greely missed on 10 serves during the fourth game before coming away with eight of the last 10 points.

“I think we might have gotten a little overconfident in the last game and that’s where the serving errors came from,” Cimino said.

Serving also was a problem for the Yachtsmen.

“We missed 17 serves and those games were three- to four-point games,” said Molly Northway, a graduate of Greely in her first season as head volleyball coach at Falmouth. “If we can add in those serves we could have controlled, we would have had them.”

“Those are things we can take care of in practice. A missed serve means a missed opportunity to score and it means a point for them.”

Alex Tebbs had a team-high 13 kills and six service aces for the Rangers. Molly Chapin had 11 kills, and Coco Petrone had a team-high seven service aces.

In the first set, the Rangers put together runs of six and five points to open a 19-13 lead. Falmouth got no closer than six points the rest of the way.

In the second set, the Yachtsman rallied from a nine-point deficit, scoring six of the final eight points.

After building an early nine-point lead in the third set, the Rangers held off the Yachtsmen, who managed to pull within a point down the stretch. Greely won three of the last four points to claim the set.

“We’re getting better and I’m getting to play more of the bench,” Hasch said.

Thursday night, the Rangers got a lift from Claire Davis, a reserve outside hitter.

“The girl we had out there was having trouble, and Claire came in and did a good job,” Hasch said.
