The Kushner Cobra Girls notch their first win of the season. Key to this outcome was the superior serving performance by members of the team. Sivan, Genah and Shelli put the team in position to win with their string of service aces. In game 1, the gals fell behind 15-8 by missing 3 serves until Sivan served 8 straight aces to help the Cobras take the 16-15 lead. Genah finished off the Wildcats by closing out the game with service run which included 3 aces. The 2nd game picked up where game 1 left off. Sivan ran off a string of 6 services, which included 5 aces before missing her serve into the net. Genah followed with 6 more serves which included 5 more aces. This build enough of lead (13-4) to carry the gals to a win despite the team missing 5 serves. The gals struggled a little in game three, missing 5 serve, but managed a comeback on the string of Shelli’s 4 aces which brought the game even at 18s. But Wildcats managed to win the game 22-20. The 4th game started slowly for the Cobras as we fell behind 7-3 before Shelli ran off a string of 4 serves, followed by Cynthia’s 2 aces and Lyndsay’s ace to bring us even at 12. Sivan’s 2 aces and Genah’s 3 aces closed out the game and match for the girls first win of the season. When the girls were not winning points on service aces, Cynthia’s passing and defense kept Westchester offense at bay, by minimizing their run of points to 4 in 3 times. Sivan took those passes and set them up for 16 spike kills by middles Genah and Lyndsay.
