NORWALK- Host defending FCIAC volleyball champions Brien McMahon defeated Immaculate High 3-1 Tuesday night in the Mary Kehoe Gymnasium to secure their third overall win of the season.
The Senators have had a slow start to the season after finishing as top dog last year. “We definitely are having a harder time playing as a team than we did last year, but I think we are slowing getting better as we progress through the season,” said senior A'Niaya Nieves after Tuesday’s win.
Throughout the game, there were points where it looked like the McMahon players haven’t ever played together. On multiple occasions, a lack of communication resulted in the ball just dropping between two players that thought the other had it. “We don’t communicate well, but it’s something that we are trying to work on,” Nieves went on to say.
With a fairly light schedule, only facing two top five placed teams, McMahon is looking to turn things around and get back to their winning ways before it's too late. The Senators take on Trinity Catholic Wednesday, October 10th at McMahon followed by another home game, Friday the 12th, against New Canaan.
