It took a few minutes to get the offence rolling, but once it did, the Fulton Maroons cruised to a 3-0 (25-21, 25-21, 25-18) win over the Revelstoke Rams in senior AA girls volleyball league play Tuesday night at Fulton gym.

The Maroons, now 3-1 in the North zone, got stellar defensive play from middle blocker Shaina Banta, who had seven stuff blocks. Nazarena Wurz put away nine kills and Brittany Skrenek had seven kills and three aces.

Sam Hofsink and Jamie Botterill rallied the team with good passes, serving and attacks.

“We started the third set with a few bloopers, but then went on a 13-2 run to finish the set,” said Royals’ head coach Jason Reedyk.

The Royals then swept the Salmon Arm Jewels, 26-24, 25-15, on strong play by Laura Hulstein, Clare Thiessen and Julianna Bonin.
