When Skyview senior Amanda McDowell stepped to the service line for match point, she had one thought: Don't mess up.
McDowell's serve crossed freely and the host Skyview volleyball team survived a long, scrambling rally in which the ball cleared the net 14 times, securing a comeback victory over Seward in nonconference action Saturday.
The scores were 23-25, 20-25, 25-21, 25-23 and 20-18.
"Keep the ball on the court," McDowell said of her mind-set before the deciding point. "Don't be the first one to make a mistake."
