The Ladycats fell 28-26 in the opening game but squared the match with a 25-20 win in game two.

Granbury took game three, 25-19, to put pressure on the Ladycats as the Lady Pirates led 2-1 in games.

With the pressure on, the Ladycats followed with their strongest game of the match.

Aledo jumped out to a 13-5 lead and cruised to a 25-15 win to tie the match at 2-2.
