JOYCE — Crescent’s Becca Bowen spiked the final point to complete to give the Loggers a 3-2 victory over Port Townsend on Monday.

Crescent celebrated its hard-fought win by swarming the court and piling on top of Bowen.

Each of the match’s five games were decided by three points or less.

“It was an absolute dogfight from start to finish,” Loggers coach Alex Baker said. “Neither team wanted to lose.

“Both teams kept hitting the ball at each other until somebody was going to fold.

“Fortunately, we outlasted them.”

Baker added that it was the best match Crescent has played all year.

Bowen had seven kills, one assist and was 5 for 7 serving.

Junior setter Devanie Christie was 21 for 22 serving with three aces, 34 assists and one tip.

With the win, the Loggers avenged last month’s tough 3-0 loss to the Redskins.
