The Lassiter Trojans traveled west to the Harrison Hoyas gym to take on the Lady Hoyas in a much-anticipated volleyball matchup. There was a lot of back and forth throughout the match, but the Trojans ultimately prevailed in a 5-game shootout.
After splitting the first two sets, both teams looked very evenly matched. Lassiter hung strong in Game 3, keeping the score close the entire game. When the Hoyas took Game 3, making the overall score 2-1, a lesser team may have given up hope. But the Hoyas weren’t playing a lesser team.
The Trojans came out with a fury in Game 4, running a double-digit lead on the Hoyas and shutting them out through the first ten points. The first Hoya point came at 10-1, and it looked like maybe the tables had turned. But the Hoyas weren’t quite finished and rallied back to come within six points. The game ended with Trojans securing a hard-fought 25-17 win to tie the match at 2 games each.
Game 5 was mostly back and forth, each team obviously slower and tired. Mistakes were made on both sides of the net, but Lassiter faded less than Harrison and took the game and match with a 15-12 win.
Both teams will play their next games in the Cobb County Tournament on Saturday, October 5, 2019.
