HAVELOCK - Pamlico County and Havelock played each other in a five-set volleyball battle earlier in the season that saw the Rams come away with the win.
They met again Wednesday night without the dramatic finish and with a different winner.
The Hurricanes took the most recent meeting 3-0 on Wednesday night, winning by scores of 25-21, 25-13 and 25-9.
The opening set was tight the entire way and the Hurricanes seemed to snatch the momentum completely by winning it.
"It was big, really big for us to get," Pamlico County coach John Ashley said. "We talked to the girls about if we played well on defense and made Havelock earn their points, we would be in good shape and I thought we did that."
The Hurricanes committed 15 unforced errors in the match to the Rams' 26.
"Yeah I thought we played extremely clean, especially after that first set," Ashley said. "In the first one, we had service errors and things like that but the girls cleaned up really well."
Havelock head coach Carrie Lynch was visibly frustrated with her team's performance.
"We just didn't play well tonight and it's frustrating coming off a loss (Tuesday)," Lynch said. "We preach communication to them and we are going to have to step that up."
Annie Anderson led the 'Canes with 12 kills and Lindsey Potter delivered nine service points.
Hydia Davis added seven kills for Pamlico County and Zion Davis chipped in five.
For Havelock, Nseya Harden and Lauren Hill each had six kills.
Pamlico County improves to 7-3 overall and Havelock falls to 1-6.
The Hurricanes are off until Tuesday when they travel to Riverside (Martin County) while Havelock travels to Jacksonville Thursday night.
