The No. 2-ranked La Grande Tigers remained unvanquished by beating 4A Hermiston at home in non-league volleyball action Tuesday.

The Tigers downed the Bulldogs 25-19, 20-25, 25-7, 25-15.

"Well, we played good enough to win," La Grande coach Teresa Dowdy said.

She said there were moments defensively that were great for the Tigers. However, she said the Tigers need to work on transition and serve receiving.

The Tigers (9-0) had a 16-14 lead late in Game 2 before the Bulldogs finally pulled out the win and evened the match at one game each.

Game 3 was dominated by the Tigers. They had an 8-0 lead before the Bulldogs scored their first point.

Kathryn Ely's kill gave the Tigers a 15-3 lead. Morgan Bonney's kill off an Amanda Timm assist made the lead 21-4. The Tigers cruised the rest of the way in that game.

Ely blasted a ball past one Bulldog blocker in Game 4 to put the Tigers up 12-9.

The Bulldogs could not chip further into the lead for the rest of the game. They came as close as four or five points the rest of the way.

Amanda Timm caught the Bulldog defense not paying attention when she dumped the ball twice in a row to give the Tigers a lead of 22-13.

Timm was 6-for-6 on dumps and had five kills.

Lyman was 28-for-28 hitting with 11 kills, Ely was 28-32 with 13 kills and Goss was 23-for-27 with nine kills.

Ely served 16-for-17, Timm was 14-for-15, Katelin Weaver was 11-for-11, Stephanie Keith was 12-for-12, Joellyn Hasse was 14-for-14 and Breezy Fredricksen was 6-for-7.

Dowdy said the Tigers still need to be more consistent, yet it was good competition playing against a 4A team.

"Overall, I was pleased with everybody's effort," she said.

The Tigers host No. 9-ranked Baker at 7 p.m. Thursday.
