Tied at 24, the Fire came out of the hard fought set victorious 27-25. The next 2 sets were history. With the bleachers shaking, the band playing, fans cheering, Dahl and Guggemos both recorded shocking blocks.

With 4 more game left in the season (New Life, BSM, St. Paul Highland, and Waconia), the ladies will hope the obtain a few more wins, and drive up the seeding ranks. The Fire will play in Section 2AA, and will go up against heavy hitters like Bloomington Kennedy, SW Christian, and Jordan. Although the 1-15 record, the Girls have been winning sets, as 7 have been won in the season, but it takes 3 sets to win a game, and the spark started Tuesday could be the ignition to light an inferno.
