A raucous crowd at Santa Clarita Christian School was treated to a five-game thriller Tuesday night that ultimately saw Trinity Classical Academy defeat the Cardinals for the first time ever, 3-2.

The game scores were: 19-25, 23-25, 25-20, 25-22, and 15-10.

Trinity took a quick lead to start game one before SCCS tied the game 5-5. The Cardinals never trailed again as they won the first game 25-19.

The Knights jumped out to a 3-0 lead in game 2 before SCCS tied the frame 3-3. Trinity brought the score to 24-23, but lost 25-23.

“Just take care of our side,” Trinity head coach Rebecca Peluffo told her team after dropping the first two games. “We need to worry about what we can control and everything else will fall into place.”

Tied 3-3 to start game three, the Knights used a 16-7 run to balloon the lead to 19-10. The Cardinals continued to fight, however, bringing the score to 24-20. Trinity’s Kathryn Brooks halted any Cardinal comeback with a kill to give the Knights the 25-20 win.

Trinity and SCCS went back and forth in game four, tallying six ties and five lead changes. After a timeout with the score 23-19, the Cardinals brought the score to 24-22, but couldn’t capitalize, losing the fourth frame 25-22.

Game five matched game four with six ties and five lead changes in a seesawing set that Trinity won 15-10, highlighted by Hannah Caddow’s two kills for the final two points.

“That last set I told Kathryn [Brooks], ‘Please set me, I think I can do this,’” Caddow said. “We couldn’t have done it without her execution. We’re a family.”

Caddow led the Knights with 16 digs, Allie Brown had eight kills, Kathryn Brooks had 13 assists, and Taylor Oshiro had six blocks. Trinity is now 2-1 in the Heritage League and host league-leading Faith Baptist (3-1) Thursday night.

SCCS was lead by Kalona Marr’s 10 kills, Vanessa Cardenas’ 15 assists, and Kaleigh Moss’s 13 digs. The Cardinals are now 1-1 in the Heritage League and travel to Lancaster Baptist High School to face the Eagles (1-3) Thursday night.
