  Error-prone Lady Panthers fall to Mesquite Poteet, 3-0
Monitor Staff Reports
MABANK–Numerous missed shots, poor service receive and unforced errors helped the Mesquite Poteet Lady Pirates sweep the hosting Mabank Lady Panthers 3-0 Tuesday.
Now 16-16 on the year and 2-2 in District 15-4A play, the Lady Panthers were scheduled for a bye Friday night.

Tuesday, Sept. 29, Mabank’s girls resume district play on the road against the Forney Lady Jackrabbits, and they will stay on the road Friday, Oct. 2, when they visit Terrell for the final first-round match.
Both evenings open with 5:30 p.m. sub-varsity matches.
Facing a much taller, more athletic opponent, the Lady Panthers needed to play well, but from the start, they appeared unfocused, and that was reflected in the game scores, as the Lady Pirates won 25-8, 25-10 and 25-12.
“It was a very difficult match for us,” veteran Mabank coach Stacy Shelton said later. “Poteet took advantage of everything we gave them.
“Right now, we’ve got to put that match past us and work on getting ready for Forney and Terrell,” Shelton added. “Those are really big matches for us next week.”
Alison Castle led the Lady Panther offense with nine kills, adding one block and one dig, while Lauren Norwood had five kills and five digs.
Jena Penney had the only other Mabank kill, and Meagan Royal posted the only other block.
Freshman setter Kourtney Holyfield had 13 assists and three digs, while Whitney Evans had one assist and two digs.
Defensively, Taylor Chapa had four digs, Sadie Roberts one dig and Shaylee Williams five digs.
