Ladycats hold off Springtown to stay unbeaten in 5-4A

October 2, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Coming back from a 2-1 deficit in games, the Aledo Ladycats won game four by a 25-16 count and rode that momentum to win decisive game five in blowout fashion, 15-6, over the Springtown Lady Porcupines Friday night in District 5-4A action at Springtown.

The 25-27, 25-22, 22-25, 25-16, 15-6 win elevates the Ladycats' record to 25-8 and 7-0 in district play. Aledo will continue district play at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5, at Birdville.

"Coach (Kathy) Goings told us (after game three) that there was no way we were going to lose the match," senior middle hitter Jordan Jacobs said. "We are a tight-knit team, and we just drew closer, got focused and refused to lose.

"Our goal is to go undefeated in district, and we can still achieve that."
