DUBLIN - Despite one good game, the Moody Lady Bearcats overpowered the Dublin Lady Lions by the scores of 25-3, 22-25, 25-11 and 25-14.
The first game was short, and not so sweet. Moody polished the Lady Lions off in a hurry with the hard serves of Tiffany Kowalski, who started the game with 12 straight points before Dublin finally forced a side out.
The following server was Logan Reeder, who served up 11 in a row bringing the score to Moody 24, Dublin 2.
Head Coach Pattilu Clark said they were trying out a new rotation for this game.
In the second game, Dublin was on the ball, returning serves and picking up crucial digs by Tabby Baker.
The Lady Lions were able to dispose of Moody by the score of 25-22 to even the match at one game each.
In game three, DHS wasn't able to hold on to the momentum and allowed Moody to take the set, 25-11.
"In the third game, we got relaxed and giggly and said, ‘oh that was fun,' and that's what happened that game."
In the fourth, and final game, Moody got off to a strong start on its way to the 25-14 win to finish the match.
Dublin returns to the net for day one of tournament action in Bangs Thursday, before traveling to Eastland Friday, then going back to Bangs for the final day of tournament play Saturday.
