The second match of the evening saw a very experienced and tough Payson team taking on a young team from Pawnee.  When you saw both of these teams standing out on the court before the game, you could see that Payson would also have a distinct size advantage all the way around the court.  Payson jumped out to an early 6 point lead and held that lead until they starting making a few mistakes and let Pawnee back in to the first game.  Pawnee made a nice effort but it came up a bit short and Payson took game 1 25-21.  In the second game, Pawnee just could not find an answer for the net play of Payson and they also committed too many service errors to keep themselves in it.  A great effort by Pawnee all the way around tonight but Payson would prove to be too much as Payson picks up the 25-21, 25-12 to advance on to the Sectional Championship.  For Pawnee, Jessica Bailey led the way with 5 kills tonight and Gianni Bennett added 4 blocks.  Payson was led by Catherine Richards with 15 kills and also got 22 assists from Erin Smith.  Payson will take on Lutheran for the Sectional Championship on Thursday night.
