Cowgirls pink out Lady Pirates
The Bryson Cowgirls had trouble closing out against the Perrin Lady Pirates but won the Oct. 22 match 3-1.
The Cowgirls fell behind early in the first set but even the score 10-10 and did not look back. Bryson’s Emery Fisher and Brinkley Richardson both had two aces in Bryson’s 25-20 first set victory.
The second set was a similar story, with Bryson falling well behind early at 7-1. Perrin’s Aaliyah Brown scored the Lady Pirate’s first six service points with two aces and three helpful blocks from Nayeli Lopez.
Perrin’s lead grew to 14-7 before Bryson started chipping back and tied the set 15-15 before three bad spikes from Perrin and a carry put them too far behind, giving the Cowgirls a 25-18 second set win and a 2-0 lead.
Bryson coach Kim Hauger said she was proud of how her team fought to win the first two sets, despite falling behind.
“The girls came out and played hard,” Haguer said. “We did what we needed to do, despite getting behind in games. We worked point to point to get back in.”
