PLYMOUTH â€” Visiting Clay battled back in the third set, but Plymouthâ€™s squad clamped down on Senior Night to finish off the Colonials in the minimum of games, 25-14, 25-18, 25-19 Tuesday.
After leading all the way through, the Pilgrims battled through a total of five ties during the final game at The Rock, putting away Clay with a decisive 11-5 run.
â€śOur serving got a little tougher and we got some service errors on them, and that made the difference that last game,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Walt Pickerell.

KNOX â€” Josh Andersonâ€™s running style resembles something like the merger of a cheetah and bulldozer.
And with John Glennâ€™s football team looking a little lethargic Friday at Knox, it needed every bit of Andersonâ€™s speed-power combination.
The junior running back scored four touchdowns â€”Â one during each frame â€” rushed for a game-leading 237 yards on 25 carries, and caught a two-point conversion pass for good measure to apply a little shine on an otherwise subdued 29-0 Northern State Conference win at Community Field.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was a good end to a bad week.
â€śItâ€™s a great end to a bad week,â€ť said Plymouth football head coach John Barron on the field after his teamâ€™s 34-14 win over Warsaw on Friday. â€śMy dad was watching this one. It was awesome.â€ť
Barron knew that he wouldnâ€™t be able to be on the sideline for this weekâ€™s game, owing to his ejection a week ago at Rochester. Barron also had to deal with the death of his father early in the week taking him away from his team to be with his family.
