Amanda McDowell had 12 kills, 10 service points and four blocks to lead the Panthers.

"Amanda McDowell was solid in all aspects of the game," Skyview coach Sheila Kupferschmid said. "When she wants to turn it on - wow, look out."

Mary Hauptman added nine service points for Skyview.

"Mary Hauptman had a very nice match running the offense," Kupferschmid said.

Marlee Cunningham added nine kills and five blocks for Skyview, while Karlie Self had five digs, Britanie Whipple had 10 service points, Cheyenne Laber had four kills and Holly Ramsell had two kills.

"Our defense couldn't pass the ball to save our lives tonight," Kardinals coach John Kennedy said after his team dropped to 0-8 in the conference.

Kennedy did say that when his team was able to get the ball up, it was able to do some good things. He said the whole problem was consistency.

Skyview hosts Colony at 6 p.m. Friday for senior night, then hosts Palmer at 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

The Kardinals are off until Oct. 21 and 22 for the Dimond-Service tournament. After that, Kenai has just two regular season games left.
