EBAL Showdown

Granada at Amador Valley, 6 p.m., Oct. 20

When the Amador Valley girls volley team lost its EBAL season opener to Granada on Sept. 29, the win came as a surprise because the defending league champs were playing inspired volleyball with a clutch win over perennial power Carondelet a week earlier.

The Matadors, who finished 5-7 last season in the EBAL, have backed up that win with wins over everyone except Foothill to sit atop the league standings with Amador Valley.

The Dons haven’t dropped a league-match since the Granada loss and are looking to take sole possession of first place. Will the upstart Matadors continue their winning ways and double up Amador Valley?

    The EBAL has the strongest league from top to bottom this year. Just abouit every match is close and hard fought and there really are no upsets. The team(s) that survive this all D1 leagy=ue will be battle tested for NCS playoiffs.

    The EBAL has the most competitive league for girls volleyball in the area this year. There are no real upsets cause there really are no clearcut favorites. Everyone has beaten and also lost to another team in the league. The all D1 league could do some serious damage at NCS playoffs, as the teams that survive to be in playoffs will really be battle tested.
