Two nights against a pair of teams from the 3A level resulted in one victory and one loss for the Seaside volleyball team earlier this month.
The Gulls posted a four-set win Sept. 8 over visiting Taft, 25-20, 25-12, 16-25, 25-14.
Seaside trailed 11-6 in the opening set, but tied the Tigers at 17-17, then reeled off three straight points highlighted by a block from Aubrie Taylor, who added a kill down the stretch for the win.
The Gulls led the second set 20-7, and Taylor finished off the Tigers with a stuff block at game point.
After Taft won the fourth set, Seaside snapped an 11-11 tie in Game 5 with six straight points. Alyssa Chen had a service ace at match point.
The Gulls traveled to Clatskanie Sept. 9, where the Tigers remained undefeated with a 25-19, 25-22, 25-14 sweep.
Seaside followed with losses to Stayton, Estacada and Yamhill-Carlton. The team opened Cowapa League play Tuesday with a loss at Valley Catholic.
