The Centerville Lady Bulldogs Volleyball team traveled to Knightstown on Monday night for an early Tri-Eastern Conference matchup. These two teams fought it out all the way until the fifth set when the Lady Panthers prevailed over the Lady Bulldogs 3-2.
The Lady Bulldogs brought the energy in set one. They got out to an early lead and never looked back as they took set one 25-14. The Lady Panthers then found their game in set two as they ran away with it 25-10. Then the energy sparked for both teams in set three, and became an all out battle. A long and grueling third set fell to the Lady Panthers 25-21 as they took a 2-1 lead. The Lady Bulldog’s were going to have to dig deep, and fight their way back. They did just that after they trailed big early in set four. The two teams battled back and forth throughout the fourth set before the Lady Bulldogs pulled it out 25-23 forcing a set five. The fifth set came tough for the Lady Bulldogs. After leading early, they then fell behind and couldn’t climb their way out as the Lady Panthers took set five 15-10, and the matchup 3-2.
The Lady Bulldog’s didn’t go down without a fight. They battled back, and showed they belonged in the mix atop the TEC. Coach Amorim made clear after the game to the girls, that this was just a small hiccup in the road. Things will change, and this loss does not define Centerville Volleyball.
