The Desert Vista boys volleyball team is looking for consistency in the early portion of the season.

The Thunder didn’t exactly find it Thursday night, but did enough to knock off rival Mountain Pointe 19-25, 25-20, 25-21, 18-25 and 15-13.

“We’re not there yet, but at least they came together to pull this one out,” Desert Vista coach Ryan Tolman said. “We are trying to stay positive and figure things out.”

The win improved the Thunder to 5-5 overall and 1-1 in power point matches on the season.

The final game was tied at 12 before the Thunder won it on a Pride hitting error.

“It was Mountain Pointe-Desert Vista so it is always tough,” Holman said. “(Mountain Pointe) is supposed to be down, but (coach) Fred (Mann) is always going to have them ready to play. I just didn’t want (the Thunder) to come in overconfident.”

Mann said the Pride (4-6 overall, 2-1 in power point matches) was disappointed but have the right mix of players to make it work.

“We’ve got a lot to work on but I like my team,” he said. “We will be fine.”
