The Hingham girls dominated Plymouth South on Friday in a 3-0 win to add on to their 5-0 record going into the game. This seems to be the pattern for Hingham, having only dropped one set so far this season.

The home team started strong, winning the first ten points of the match and closing the first set out at 25-13. Plymouth South kept it closer for the remaining two sets, but could never quite gain the momentum to make any real progress.

Halfway through the game, an argument broke out between the Plymouth South coach and the referee, stopping play for several minutes. The dispute was over one of the boys on the Plymouth South team. The Hingham team manager, Kaylin Ryan, explained that the boys have different rules and that “the boys can’t block or hit the ball, they can only really set.”

Hingham’s attacking was on point all night, with sophomore Nora Shulze getting an impressive 11 kills, and Lilly Steiner and Mathilde Megard each getting 7. Not to mention, Hingham’s Agnes O’Reilly and Alex Kennedy made these kills possible with consistent and well placed sets all game long. The libero, Colette Hanney, also played a big role in the win with 15 digs in total. 

Although Hingham has had a lot of easy wins this season, they are set to play Duxbury on Monday which could be a difficult match. Duxbury is also undefeated this season and has not been greatly challenged this season. 

When asked about the upcoming match, Audrey Nolan said, “I think we’ve been playing really well this season and Duxbury is definitely one of our biggest competitors so I’m excited.” The game will be at Hingham High at 5:30 on Monday and all are encouraged to come and cheer the Harborwomen on.
