Pilipa’a defeats Orlando Gold 17 Black, remains undefeated (Updated)

Pilipa’a defeated Orlando Gold 17 Black (25-23, 25-17) to remain undefeated at 6-0 after two days of play at the 2008 USA Volleyball Junior Olympics in Sandy, Utah.

“We struggled earlier today against Ku’ikahi. We made a lot of unforced errors that kept the match close,” coach Ecko said. “We played better against Tool City in our second match and continued to improve through the afternoon. Our defense really came to play in our 3rd match. The intensity was at a much higher level for the entire team.”

Pilipa’a completed the day with a 3-0 match record winning their pool and advancing to the 4th round and remaining in the hunt for the Gold medal round. Pilipa’a will play Highline 17 Red at noon HST on Tuesday, followed by a 2pm matchup with TNT 17 Elite and 4pm matchup with Vaqueros 17M of Puerto Rico.
