Blake Banner insists that she brought no plans for redemption into Thursday's tri-match after Beaufort High School endured its first and only Region 8-AAAA loss two days earlier to Summerville.

"Honestly, this match wasn't even close to making up for (Tuesday's loss)," the junior said.

It sure didn't look like it.

Banner buried Battery Creek High School with one kill and seven straight aces to open the final match at Battery Creek, setting the tone for the Eagles' 25-7, 25-7 sweep of the Dolphins. Beaufort also defeated Goose Creek 25-15, 25-4, while the Dolphins beat the Gators for the second time this week 25-18, 25-12.

Serving proved to be a strong point for the Eagles, who kept the Dolphins at bay with precise shots that left Battery Creek diving to cover the holes within its formations.

After Banner set the tone, Deja Jackson and Andrea Fabian teamed up to secure the win, recording seven kills and eight assists, respectively, to open up nine- and seven-point runs.
