E-T Staff Report

Hico and Dublin have played 10 sets in their two marathon District 6-2A volleyball matches and nothing has been determined.

Hico avenged its five-set home loss to the Lady Lions earlier this season by erasing a two-games-to-one deficit and winning in five at Dublin Tuesday.

Third-place Dublin fell to 4-4 in 6-2A play, while Hico improved to 3-5, where the Lady Tigers are tied with Eastland for fourth. In 2A, only three teams advance to the playoffs from each district.

Breckenridge and Hamilton are in the top two spots.

Dublin hosts last-place Bangs Saturday while Hico entertains Eastland in a potential do-or-die match. If Dublin wins, only the winner of the Hico-Eastland match will be alive in the playoff race entering Tuesday's season finales.

Dublin has the daunting task of visiting first-place Breckenridge Tuesday while Hico travels to Bangs. Eastland closes out its regular season at home against Hamilton.
