Due West, SC – The Lady Lions took to the court tonight to face Conference foe, Erskine College. However, with much exerted effort, the Lions were defeated in three sets.
The Lions came to the court swinging, however, the Flying Fleet were on their toes tonight, and were determined to get the quick lead. Erskine was able to get the lead and won the first set, 25-12. However, the Lions did not let the numbers on the scoreboard affect their game, and continued to still play their game. Sadly, though Erskine was refusing to make any unforced errors and played every ball tactically. The Flying Fleet won the second set, 25-10. The start of the third set was a little better than the previous two, as the Lions stepped up their game and started playing with intensity. This made Erskine rethink their strategy. Despite these last few efforts from the Lions, the Flying Fleet closed the game by winning the third and final set 25-20.
Although the numbers on the scoreboard were not in favor of the Lady Lions, they still played well, with Sarah Neill having 13 kills on her record, and Stephanie Hardy assisting the various kills 20 times.
The lady Lions next take to the court on Friday at 7:00PM when they will travel to Limestone College to take on the Saints.
