It didn't matter what the Tigers (10-17) tried to do in defense.
"Mary Bass is a really good athlete,'' Westville coach Annie Pickelsimer said. "Last night, we made an adjustment in our blocking schemes. We tried to do the same thing tonight, but it didn't matter.
"I even tried to have a girl cheating to help on the block against Bass, but Bismarck saw it and went around us.''
Late in the second set, Bismarck-Henning got kills from Lindsey Andrews and a tip/kill from Winkler during its 10-5 run to close out the match.
"It was a very good night from Mary Bass,'' Kentner said. "We want to get Mary involved quickly and often, but we also understand that we have other really good hitters around her. Tonight, Mary did a good job of finding the court quickly.
"And when we saw Westville trying to cheat on her, we made our own adjustment.''
Westville was able to match Bismarck-Henning point-for-point in the first set, ultimately the Blue Devils pulled out a 25-22 victory.
"The first set kind of set the pace for us,'' said Picklesimer, who was pleased with the effort from her Tigers. "We lost by three and we missed three serves. That was the difference between winning the set and losing the set.''
With the victory, Bismarck-Henning advances to the regional championship where the Blue Devils will face the top-seeded Salt Fork Storm.
"Now, we're going to start focusing on Salt Fork,'' said Winkler. "This means everything since we didn't win the county title. Winning a regional title will mean to us and a lot to our coach.''
Salt Fork has won both previous meetings with Bismarck-Henning. The Storm defeated the Blue Devils 25-17, 25-22 in the Vermilion County Tournament and on Oct. 22, Salt Fork won in three sets (25-18, 16-25, 25-22) over Bismarck-Henning.
Thursday's championship match at Bismarck-Henning is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
