Sideout defeated Psychos 15-10, 15-12
The Co-rec final featured last
year’s champs, Sideout, versus
Psychos. Psychos lost their first
game of the season but rebounded
with six consecutive victories to
advance to the championship.
Sideout was also stellar during the
season at 7-1 overall.
Game one of the final began
evenly paced until Sideout’s Stacy
Grillo put together several
well-placed serves to give Sideout
an 8-5 lead. Psychos battled back to
even the score at nine. Then
Sideout’s Tuan Tran served three
winners for a 12-9 Sideout
advantage. Teammate Geoffrey
Harm finished the game by serving
Out three winners for a 15-10 score.
Sideout jumped to an early lead in game two behind Grillo’s serving and Heather Swimm’s setting. Psychos rebounded, thanks in part to Urip Purwono’s service winners. Liane Patsuk added service points and Psychos had their first lead of the game, 12-9. But a victory was not to be; recharged Sideout dominated the rest of the game behind Melissa Cohen’s serves and co-captain Mike Chase’s offensive feats. Sideout won the second game 15-12 and another Co-rec championship.
