The Lakewood volleyball team took on the second-best team in the division, the Ferndale Golden Eagles, on Oct. 19.

The Cougars started off the first set strong as they went up quickly, 7-1. After a time out by the Golden Eagles, they began to fight their way back and eventually overtake the Cougars with a final score of 25-22.

The second set started off neck and neck as it seemed like neither team could separate by more than a couple of points. With a late time out both teams were tied at 20-20, that is until Ferndale pulled away with a set score of 25-21.

After two close defeats the Cougars got off to another fast start as they scored seven uncontested points. However, Ferndale began to battle back after a time out and overtook Lakewood in the end, 25-23. Overall the Cougars lost the match 3-0.

Lakewood's Sidney Goodall recovers to set up the offense against the Golden Eagles at Lakewood High School on Oct. 19.

"They played so well together and all we need are little tweaks in order to get to that next level. With this being my first year there has been a lot to learn, but I keep a lot of the values as the previous head coach and the girls have bought into the vision for the team," said Lakewood Head Coach Megan Hunter.

Sidney Goodall, Tehanna Goodall and Jelly Perry led the Cougars with their strong hitting performances. Sidney led the team with eight kills to go along with her two aces and 18 digs. Tehanna was right behind her as she had seven kills and an impressive 20 digs. Perry had a team-high three aces, five kills and 12 digs.

Junior setter Kimmy Epperson was at the center of the Lakewood offense as she directed traffic on her way to a game-high 24 assists.

Sara Funston played a key role on the Cougars' defense as she had the game-high in digs with a total of 23.

If you want to support the Cougars, their last home match of the season will be against the Blaine Borderites on Thursday, Oct. 26, at 7:15 p.m.
