I think we have done well so far,” Providence coach Terri Purichia said. “I think as far as execution on the court, we’re doing a pretty good job. We haven’t had too many missed steps, but we haven’t looked maybe as polished as we’d like to look.”
Jacquie Hornung had a Providence-best 10 kills and earned 11 service points in the victory. Taylor Wilson added eight kills and three blocks, Haley Libs had eight kills and three digs, Patricia Mattingly finished with 32 assists and Audrey Shannon led the Pioneers with 18 service points and five digs.

Cassidy Mull had four kills to lead the Hornets. Emma Hendricks and Haley Huddleston added three apiece.
NEXT: Henryville at West Washington, tonight; Charlestown at Madison, tonight.
• Carrier, Baker lead Devils to 3-1 victory: Brooke Baker scored a first-half goal to pull Jeffersonville even with Butler (Ky.) and Devan Carrier scored a pair of second-half goals as the Red Devils earned a 3-1 road victory.
Jeff gave up an early goal before Baker equalized with an unassisted goal late in the half to even the score at the half.
“Brooke was a defender and we moved her to forward. She got the goal back after they scored and that made a big difference in the rest of the game,” Jeff coach Scott Epley said.
Carrier then scored eight minutes into the second half to give the Devils the lead for good. She added a second goal three minutes later.
“The goals Devan scored are exactly what we’re looking for from her,” Epley said.
