The winless Mountlake Terrace Hawks had hoped to earn their first victory of the 2019 volleyball season on Thursday, but a crushing fifth set by the visiting Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks squashed Terrace’s effort.
Marysville-Pilchuck went on a 12-2 run midway through the fifth set to win it 15-10 and the match 3-2 (25-14, 25-22, 17-25, 16-25, 15-10) in a Wesco League tilt played at Mountlake Terrace High School.
Terrace had fought back from a 2-0 set deficit by winning the third and fourth sets, but ran out of gas in the deciding frame against the feisty Tomahawks.
