The No. 2 Hazen volleyball team put away No. 7 Glen Ullin-Hebron in three quick sets with scores of 25-16, 25-21 and 25-23.

Hazen held the lead throughout the first two sets, with the Bearcats struggling to keep up.

Things changed in the third set though. Glen Ullin-Hebron took over until they were mere points from victory with a 23-22 lead.

However, the Bison summoned their strength and scored the final three points to win 25-23.

"We've really had to come back in a few. We've had several sets just like that (this season)," Hazen head coach Linette Irwin said. "I think it's just experience, they're seniors, mostly."

Senior Olivia Byerley led the Bison with seven kills followed by senior Raquel Doll who had six. Byerley also led the team in blocks with four.

Senior outside hitter Kennedy Zuroff led the Bearcats with 16 kills and seven digs.

"The third set we came out strong," Bearcats head coach Maria Stockert said. "We definitely wanted to keep going. They just got us in the end with some of those mistakes we shouldn't be making at the end of the season."

The Bison advance to play Heart River on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
