OAKLAND CITY - Tecumseh used more spiking and better serving to beat Cannelton 25-10, 25-7, 25-6 in the first round of Wood Memorial's Class A volleyball sectional Saturday.
The smaller Bulldogs made only five kills and one block.
Sometimes a small team can make up for a lack of dominant front-row hitting with strong passing and serving.
But the Bulldogs had 13 dropped balls and made eight bad serves, including five in the first game. They had no ace serves.
They trailed only 5-2 in the first game before they made their first serve into the net.
