The Ketchikan High School Lady Kings needed extra points, on top of extra points. But at the end of the end of the day, Ketchikan’s volleyball squad finally broke through with a victory.

The Lady Kings won their first game this season in a 3-2 thriller over the Craig High School Lady Panthers on Friday night.

The two teams met at Craig High School in a rematch of last week’s match at Clarke Cochrane Gymnasium.
