Dorothy Mastel, Red Lodge, gets ready to worry the Forsyth team.

An enthralling game by any standards as Red Lodge refused to give up the fight against a dogged Forsyth to seal a win after a grueling 5-set encounter. Forsyth led the way, taking the first set 25-12 only to see the Lady Rams pull level in the 2nd. At every turn, the games started fairly even until about the 10-point mark when one or the other would start to dominate. Once done, as this pattern of play was to prove, that team went on to win. As Forsyth steamed on to take the 3rd and now lead 2-1, Red Lodge played the trump card bringing on Dorothy Mastel who at 6 feet shook up the Forsyth team with some powerhouse kills. Neither team could shake the other going into the 4th as Red Lodge lead by 5 at 22-17 but back came Forsyth nudging the score to a nail-biting 23-21 to Red Lodge. Then Amya Rodriguez pops up with a perfect ace to mend some frayed looking fans and helps the Rams into a 5th set. Mastel against showed her dominance in front of the net securing the lead for her team at 13-12 and the frantic chase was on. Red Lodge led by the odd point until Forsyth scrambled one over the net to make it 16-16 but it was a point too far and the Rams easily secured the final 2, to make it 18-16. In a later game the Rams lost to Roundup 25-21, 25-16, 25-22, with Mastel getting 22 kills and Rodriquez 22 digs.
