First set rally turns tide against Warhawks in setback at Faulkner
For four sets, both the T.R. Miller Lady Tigers and Flomaton Lady Hurricanes did plenty of good things to claim victory.
Only Flomaton could say that in the fifth and decisive set of a 19-25, 25-14, 25-27, 25-21, 15-4 victory on the Lady Hurricanes' home court Tuesday.
Three straight missed serves by T.R. Miller followed by some key receiving errors proved to be a fatal combination in the fifth and decisive set.
"We played well for four sets. Kristen Bradley, Terri Lynne Peacock and Courtney Krehbiel all had good service rotations. Rebekah Neal made a lot of good things happen with her hustle," T.R. Miller coach Sharon Peacock said. "The serving and receiving mistakes in that fifth set just killed us. It was a tough match to lose after we had a 2-1 lead in sets."
Bradley, a senior middle hitter, led T.R. Miller (5-13) in the set one victory with a team high six points. She also scored a team high seven in the set three win. Peacock contributed four points in the set three victory, while Krehbiel added three in set one.
T.R. Miller's junior varsity improved to 2-1 on the season with a 25-11, 25-8 victory.
"They played extremely well. Rachel Morgan had a good match at the service line, while Rebecca Scott came up with some good serving in set two. Vivian Muth also served well," Peacock said.
T.R. Miller will play at Clarke County Tuesday as part of a quad-match. The Lady Tigers meet Sumter County at 4 p.m. and Clarke County at 6 p.m.
