An athletic Londonderry squad played "the best we've have all year," according to head coach David Starin, surging to a first-game victory. But Pinkerton made a savvy lineup adjustment and gradually took control, turning the tide for a 3-1 victory and a berth in the Division 1 volleyball semifinals. Justin Scott (16 kills)was strong in victory for the Astros, and Luke D'Urso (8 service points with 2 aces) performed well despite playing with a broken foot suffered three games before.
