CANNELTON - Cannelton had trouble making good returns in a 25-7, 25-15, 25-9 volleyball loss to Orleans Thursday.
The Bulldogs often were unable to set up their bump-set-spike attack. And when they did make spikes, only two of them went for kills - one apiece by Sarah Powers and Shy May.
Cannelton pulled within 21-14 in the second game as Jaci Garrett served a point.
But Orleans then forced a side out and served the next two points to build its lead back to 10.
Freshman Sammie James served four points, including one ace, to lead Cannelton for the match.
