With the win, the Potters are 3-1 on the season.
"We are 3-1. We played 16 games this week," East Liverpool head coach Bob Shansky said. "That is a lot of games for the opening week and for the first week of school."
Individually for the Potters, Taylar Jordan recorded 43 sets, eight assists, 28 spikes and 17 kills, Morgan Campbell collected seven points, 42 attacks and 16 kills and Jordyn Adkins added 75 sets and 22 assists.

Individually for East Liverpool (0-4), Elise Smith tallied eight points and two kills, Sierra Voorhees finished with five assists and Sierra Nichols chipped in with three kills.
"It was a pretty tough first week," Shansky said. "I thought the kids came through, especially in the last game. They were exhausted. They beat us bad in the fourth game, 25-10, but we came out and built a 10-1 or 10-2 lead.
"Jordyn Adkins served eight-straight points for us to go from 2 to 9. That was a big thing right there to go up 9-1. That really gives you momentum in the last game.
"That was a good team. They are much improved. All of the teams we have played are much improved. Our kids are working hard. It was a long week for the kids. We were able to get through. Now, we have to get ready for next week."
East Liverpool plays at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Columbiana County rival Wellsville.
