Pojoaque Valley won a chess match of a volleyball contest Thursday night, edging West Las Vegas three games to two at Ben Lujan Gym in Jacona.
The duel was more reminiscent of these longtime volleyball rivals’ greatest clashes. Days earlier, they’d met in the Portales tournament, and the Elkettes had a more convincing win, taking it 3-1.
But this one was a back-and-forth affair.
Pojoaque, the No. 3 ranked team in Class 4A according to MaxPreps, coasted to a 25-12 verdict in game one.
Then West got even, 25-21.
