The Belton Lady Tigers Volleyball teams took to the road on Tuesday evening as they played the Copperas Cove Lady Dawgs.
In varsity action, the Lady Tigers played solid in the opening set. But untimely errors cost the team down the stretch, as Belton fell in straight games. Copperas Cove took the games by scores of 25-23, 25-15 and 25-13.
Belton is now 21-13 overall and 4-4 District 8-6A action, with four games to play.
The Lady Tigers played well enough to win the first game, but could not hold the lead late.
“I was proud of our effort in the first set as we led the majority of the time, but let a few errors at the crucial last few points steal the win from us,” Belton head coach Krystal Brodbeck said.
The second and third games were not up to Brodbeck’s expectations.
“Our hitting errors and digging errors out numbered the positive impact in the second and third set, and we were unable to recover,” Brodbeck said. “We will hit the road again this Friday to battle with Midway.”
Emily Holder had 11 digs, six assists, five kills and a service ace. Elicia Jackson had five kills and two blocks. Kamryn Madden five kills, four digs and two blocks. Jamie Janczak had 11 digs, four kills and two service aces. Katie Bain had 11 digs and an ace.
Kale Kincannon had eight assists, four digs and an ace.
