He took charge, once ordering an Orange Coast College teammate to sit down because it wasn’t his turn to serve. He then almost took out one of the line judges with a ferocious shot, accurate enough to record a kill. “That happens sometimes,” Welch said with a smile. The line judge made herself a perfect target in the corner.

In two of the first three sets, the team that trailed late rallied to win and the Rebels did their best to follow suit with a furious rally in the fourth set after the Lightning began to pull away late. “I told the kids [before the fourth game]

NORTHRIDGE - Paula Weishoff and Don Mattingly could share notes these days.

But only once did the hot start produce a victory as the Matadors claimed a 19-25, 25-16, 25-22, 25-16 triumph that kept them tied for first in conference with national power Hawaii.
