SCARBOROUGH — The seniors on the Scarborough volleyball team certainly shined on Senior Night in Thursday’s home match against Biddeford.

Seniors Jordyn Cowan, Jillian Harvie and Kacey Foerster all notched double-digit kills for the Red Storm, who shut out the Tigers 3-0 by set scores of 30-28, 25-21 and 25-22.

“I really thought it was a team effort – all my seniors got to play and everyone contributed,” Scarborough Coach Jon Roberts said. “This was a big win against a good team.”

Both teams entered with just one loss – both to Greely, last year’s Class A state runner-up. Scarborough improved to 12-1 while Biddeford fell to 11-2.

“This is definitely one of the harder teams we’ve played since Greely,” Biddeford Coach Chantel Tourigny said, “but I think we’re both evenly matched.”

That was definitely the case in the first set when a Lexi Matteau ace gave Biddeford a 15-7 lead.

“We didn’t really make a lot of mistakes so I’m happy with our performance,” Tourigny said. “They had a lot of really nice plays that they executed. We did not have as many nice ones.”

The Red Storm crawled back from the eight-point deficit and Cowan – who led the team with 12 kills – served the game point for the 30-28 win.

“They easily could have won that game,” Roberts said of Biddeford. “And if they did, who knows if we would have come back.”

The second set was back and forth, with possession switching 32 times. For the 25-21 win, senior Libby Chadbourne set up Cowan, who slammed the ball into the open court before the Tigers could react.

“We talked about relentless pursuit and we definitely showed that tonight,” Cowan said. “Our setters were just making super smart plays and putting it exactly where it needed to go.”

In the third set, Cowan again stepped up when the team needed her.

Tied 20-20, she notched three kills – including the game point – for the 25-22 win.

“It’s Senior Night so everyone was so happy,” Cowan said. “We all just went out and played for each other. Everybody had their moments.”

Harvie added 11 kills and Foerster had 10 for the Red Storm.

Kendra Cote led the Tigers with nine kills.

“We were having a little trouble setting her up,” Tourigny said of Cote. “When we have a game where she can swing, the outcome is usually different.”

The win was Scarborough’s 12th straight after losing its opener, which Roberts said may have provided the fire his defending state champion team needed.

“In the beginning of the season we were not there mentally,” Cowan said. “We were caught up in last year. We felt like we had a lot on our shoulders and thought there was pressure on us. Now we play like we’ve got nothing to lose.”

And while a loss is always hard to swallow, it may have been a well-timed challenge for the Tigers.

“It’s nice that we played them right before (the) playoffs,” Tourigny said. “I think that if we see them again, it will definitely be a toss-up.”
