Both Parkland and Liberty battled through rough patches on Thursday night in the EPC Semifinal.  Fortunately for the #1 seed Trojans, they were able to close out the match late for a 3-1 (25-13, 25-21, 23-25, 25-19) win.  Josh Nation (So. OH) fought off some cramping issues in set 3 which opened the door for Fred Patton (Jr. OH) to step in offensively while Rahul Jaspara (Jr. DS) handled the defensive assignment.  Chase Robbins (Sr. OH) lead the way offensively with 25 kills and 10 digs while Nation still managed to contribute 10 kills and 6 digs.  Will Stiles (Jr. S) dished out 48 assists and added 10 digs.

Next up for the Trojans is the EPC Final against #2 Emmaus.  That match will be held on Wednesday, May 17th @ Allen HS at 6:00 pm.  Prior to the match, the 1st Team EPC All-Stars will be recognized.
