MABANK–In a battle of former district foes, the visiting Eustace Lady
Bulldogs nipped the Mabank Lady Panthers 3-2 Tuesday.
The narrow loss was the final non-district volleyball match for the 7-14
Lady Panthers, who were scheduled to open District 15-4A play at home
Friday against Lancaster.
A good-sized crowd in the cavernous Mabank High School gym got its
money’s worth, as Eustace won the first game, 25-16, Mabank won the
second and third games, 25-21 and 25-23, and Eustace won the fourth game
25-22 to force the deciding fifth game.
In the fifth game, the Lady Bulldogs took a narrow 15-12 win to claim
“This match could have gone either way, and Eustace just made fewer
mistakes than we did tonight,” Mabank head coach Stacy Shelton said.
“This was a good team effort,” Eustace head coach Chuck Powers said.
Eustace improved to 17-7 on the season and was scheduled to host
Tuesday, Sept. 16, the Lady Panthers will host the fourth-ranked Red Oak
Lady Hawks in a district match, opening with a 5:30 p.m. sub-varsity
That same night, the Lady Bulldogs will host two sets of Lady Wildcats –
from Rains and Sulphur Springs – in a dual match, opening with 5 p.m.
Eustace will host the Quitman Lady Bulldogs Friday, Sept. 19, in their
final non-district match, and will open District 14-3A play at home
against Wills Point Tuesday, Sept. 26.
Mabank will visit West Mesquite Sept. 19 and will stay on the road for a
district match against Mesquite Poteet Sept. 26, with both matches
opening with 5:30 p.m. sub-varsity contests.
“We made too many serve-receive errors in games four and five, and that
probably cost us the match,” Shelton said. “We blocked better, and our
offense really came together in this match.
“If we play hard like we did against Eustace, we will contend for a
playoff spot in our new district,” she added.
Both teams put up a spirited defense, as both Mabank’s Allyson Butler
and Torrie Garrett had five blocks each, while Eustace’s Camille Rogers
had six blocks and Arin Rhodes had four.
Rogers had one kill, while Rhodes had one kill, two digs and one assist.
Garrett finished with eight kills and two digs, and Butler had five
kills, three digs, one save and two assists.
Jenny McConathy and Cassie Freeman led the Eustace attack, with
McConathy notching 17 kills, two blocks and two digs, while Freeman had
15 kills and two blocks.
Alison Castle and Lauren Hamilton keyed the Mabank attack, with Castle
notching 16 kills, two blocks and six digs, while Hamilton had 14 kills,
one block, 20 digs, two saves and served up two aces.
Mabank’s Melody Cook had four kills and two blocks, with teammate Taylor
Chapa adding one kill and seven digs, while Lady Bulldog Allison Cass
had three kills, one block, 13 digs and served four aces.
Eustace’s Jessica McConathy had two kills, one block and six digs, along
with three assists, while Chelsea Truitt had one kill and four digs and
Krysta Lowry finished with 14 digs.
Both teams’ setters had strong games – Mabank’s Erica Umana finished
with 44 assists, one save, one ace and seven digs, while Eustace’s
Nicole McNeel had 19 assists and two digs, and teammate Kimberly Austin
had 14 assists and two aces.
Mabank also got six digs and one ace from Shaylee Williams, along with
five digs from Lauren Norwood and three digs from Hayley Spurgeon.
