The Friday Harbor Wolverines steamrolled the young Viking volleyball team Thursday in three straight games at Orcas High School.

The Vikings played fairly consistent, but unforced errors late in the games allowed a more experienced Wolverine team to wrap up wins in the first two games, 25-17 and 25-17.

However, the Vikings showed maturity and composure in the third game and played to a 15-12 lead before forcing Friday Harbor into a timeout. The teams tied multiple times up to 25-25 with the Wolverines ultimately winning 27-25 after exceptional play by both teams.
