O'Hara earns comeback victory over Mount St. Mary

Tonawanda News — Cardinal O’Hara played one of its best matches of the season, according to coach Brad Lorich. But it just so happened that Mout St. Mary was an able and willing opponent who forced the Hawks to come from behind to pull out a win.

Kelsey McCarthy was the star of the game with 31 kills to lead O’Hara to a 25-22, 18-25, 22-25, 25-16, 25-20 victory.

“McCarthy was incredible today,” Lorich said about McCarthy who also had 11 blocks. “She’s our best hitter and her all-time high before today was about 18 kills. They were double and triple blocking her and she was pounding the ball through the blocks.”

The Hawks (5-7, 3-6 MMAA) went into the game on a bit of a down note after struggling recently and having a hard practice on Wednesday.

Lorich was proud of the way his team responded.

“The captains had a closed door meeting before the game and they came out and played hard — the best they played all year,” he said. “They kind of had to learn how to become a real team and back each other up.”

Kelsey Kobza had 37 assists for O’Hara and Sara DiPasquale had six kills and eight blocks in the win.
