Pirettes beat Jags in tight match
Contributed by Edna Bednarz
FLORESVILLE -- Last Tuesday proved to be an exciting night for Jaguar volleyball. The Jags played host to a strong Poth team, and if you missed the match, you certainly missed some nail-biting volleyball.
Game one saw the Jags take an early 6-3 lead, but they just couldn’t seem to get things to go their way. Poth came back to tie the score at 7-7, and then took control to win 25-22.
Both teams came out strong in game two. After a 5-5 tie, the Jags pulled together and played some good ball. They passed and hit well, and went away with a 25-21 win to even up the match.
In the third game, Poth took a quick 2-0 lead, but the Jags pulled together and played tough. Poth struggled a bit as the game went on, and the Jags pulled out a 25-19 win.
Game four saw Poth take another quick 2-0 lead. The Jags tied the score at 6-6, but Poth then took control of the game and was able to pull out a 25-20 win to tie the match at two games apiece.
The fifth and final game proved to be a battle to the end. In the race to 15, Poth took a 7-4 lead before the Jags called a timeout. Floresville regrouped and came back to tie the score at 8-8. With the lead changing several times and the score becoming tied 11 times, the teams had to go into extra points. Poth eventually pulled out a 22-20 win.
In junior varsity action, Floresville also hosted Poth, and the match went three games.
The Jaguars led 11-7 before Poth came to life. Both teams played well and the score was tied three times, but the Jags pulled out a 26-24 win.
In the second game, the score was tied three times early in the game. Poth then jumped out to a 23-18 lead before a Jaguar timeout. The Jags weren’t able to pull off a comeback, though, and Poth went on to win, 25-19.
Game three for the junior varsity teams was just as exciting as game five of the varsity match. Poth took a quick 8-4 lead before the Jags came back and tied the score at 11-11. With the score tied five more times, the Jags got tough and pulled out a 26-24 win.
In freshman competition, the Jaguars couldn’t get together and Poth pulled out an easy 25-12 win in the first game. In game two, the Jags played much better. They led 3-2 early, but Poth came back and took control. The Jags later tied the score at 15-15, but Poth went on to win 25-21.
