Cowgirls sweep Lady ‘Horns in bi-district

The Bryson Cowgirls volleyball team began their 2019 playoff slate, just as they did in their 2018 state tournament run, with a bi-district match versus the Forestburg Lady ‘Horns. The Cowgirls defeated the Lady ‘Horns in straight sets 25-17, 25-10, and 25-14, Thursday night at Jacksboro’s Tiger Gymnasium.

Bryson had won its regular season match in August versus Forestburg and looked ready to take care of business in the playoff match. The Lady ‘Horns had other ideas, however, taking advantage of the notorious slow start by Bryson to keep things interesting in set one. 

The squads were tied at four before Bryson’s Brinkley Richardson rolled off back-to-back aces as part of a four-point string to give the Cowgirls an 8-4 lead. The Lady ‘Horns got within one before Bryson broke serve and got a pair of Tracy Hauger serving points to go back up four, 11-7.

Keeping the four-point lead, Windsor Godfrey’s kill broke Forestburg’s serve followed by three Emery Fisher serving points to double the lead at 17-9. 

Forestburg would get no closer than four, as Godfrey broke serve again with a kill before Rachel Robinson rolled off the final three points of set one, aided by a Riley Valiant kill.

Senior Kyla Jones opened game two with a six-point skein to force Forestburg into a timeout which helped the Cowgirls gain control early in set two. The squads traded points for a while, Forestburg coming through with just two serving points in the set.
