No. 4 Ladycats sweep Cleburne; move to 3-0 in 8-5A

September 19, 2014 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo sophomore middle hitter Maddie Goings finished with a match-high 12 kills and added four blocks and sophomore hitter Emily Smith recorded nine kills to lead the state-ranked No. 4 Ladycats to a 25-6, 25-10, 25-19 victory over Cleburne Friday night in a District 8-5A volleyball contest at Cleburne.

The win raises the Ladycats overall record to 25-7 and 3-0 in district play. Aledo will continue district play at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Crowley.
"I like that we got it done in three," Ladycats head coach Kathy Goings said. "But again, they have to keep that intensity throughout the third game. We had some mental errors again, like last Tuesday at Everman (in a Ladycats 3-1 win where AHS dropped the third game after taking a 2-0 lead), and we have to keep that intensity throughout every game.

"I really liked the way we came out and took care of business in the first two games. We were aggressive, and the serving, hitting, passing and setting were accurate, and on defense we were ready to move.
"But we just kind of got lax in that third game."

Early in the opening game, sophomore setter Erin Weiss - who finished with a match-high 26 assists - targeted sophomore middle hitter Maddie Goings on short sets for slams from the middle. In a four-point run, Maddie Goings recorded three kills and a block as Aledo took a quick 8-2 lead.

After a Cleburne point on the next rally, Weiss set Maddie Goings for consecutive kills before an ace by Hannah Berkovsky and a kill by Madison Lopez extended the Ladycats' lead to 12-3.
