The Siuslaw Vikings spotted the Sutherlin Bulldogs the first set, then charged back for three straight wins last night to capture second place in a Far West League tie-breaker in Reedsport. Elyssa Rose and Ashlee Cole had ten kills each for Siuslaw and the Vikings served at a 97% success ratio. They’ll host an OSAA “play-in” match early next week.
