The Fenton-Holly rivalry hit the Northville Invitational last weekend.

 Both squads advanced to the Silver Bracket championship game of the tournament creating the second time the squads have faced this season.

 The Bronchos won the match by a 25-14, 25-18 score.

 The Bronchos went 4-1-1 in the tourney, also beating Harper Creek, Pinckney and Rochester. They tied Saline and lost to Lake Orion. The Tigers went 3-3 at the event.

 “A lot of girls stepped up in different ways,” Holly varsity volleyball coach Deena Maher said. “We had key players out so we had to change things quite a bit, but the girls took it and ran with it. Where we struggled had nothing to do with the new girls, but had to do with the tougher competition we played. But it’s all a growing and learning experience.”
