Saltillo 75, Jefferson 20
The Lady Lions got 21 points from Victoria Stretcher and 16 for Brooke Lane as they rolled to a 75-20 win Tuesday over Jefferson.
At times the Lady Cats were blistering the net from 3-point territory. Other times the visiting Lady Lions were in command.
When the smoke cleared it was Greenville taking a 46-39 win over Sulphur Springs in the season opener for the Lady Cats.
It took four tightly fought games before a winner was declared with final results of 25-15, 19-25, 25-21, and 25-21. Cumby came out in the second game to take the early lead and held it in their only success of the night.
“Our immaturity and youth showed,” said Cumby Lady Trojan head volleyball coach Shelley Jones. “We got down in the first game and couldn’t recover. It was like a deer in the headlights reaction. It was just a different atmosphere.”
Now the big games really start.
It’s the playoffs... the time of year coaches call the third season.
First came the preseason, the Wildcats passed that test with flying colors. Sulphur Springs went a perfect 4-0.
WINNSBORO – It will be a game of tri-champion versus co-champion. Not necessarily, David versus Goliath but both teams have come a long way since the beginning of the season.
On Thursday, (6-4) Winnsboro Red Raiders will travel to Norris Birdwell Stadium in Canton as the visiting team to challenge the (8-2) Malakoff Tigers in bi-district playoff competition.
