Palatine Rebounds to Top Hoffman in Three

Not many people expected Palatine or Hoffman Estates to be 1-0 in the Mid-Suburban West going into Thursday night's boys volleyball match on the Pirates home floor.

Both teams had faced daunting tasks in their West openers, but both rose to the challenge as Palatine rallied to defeat Fremd and the Hawks came back to beat Barrington.

The Vikings and Broncos had tied for the division title last year with identical 9-1 records.

"We've been working hard," said Hoffman coach Dan Hutton, "and came in off a big conference win. We're a young team - 9 of our 12 players were on JV last year - and anytime you can come in (to the next match) off an MSL win, you're excited to play."

"I'm not sure what the problem is, but I told the guys that could come back to haunt us at the end of the season."

Then Hoffman, which had looked so sharp in the first game, seemed out of synch at times in Game 2 as Palatine (6-4, 2-0) ran off 12 of the last 13 game points to tie the match.

Then Rustman set the tone in Game 3 with 3 early block kills.

"We were definitely frustrated after the first game," said the 6-foot-10 senior. "We talked about it afterwards and got ourselves ready to go.
