No. 9 Ladycats slip past No. 1 Decatur in 5

August 19, 2014 by Tony Eierdam

Tony Eierdam/The Community News: Aledo senior libero Tyler Lucas digs a ball during the Ladycats win over Decatur Tuesday night at the AHS gym.

Class 5A state-ranked No. 9 Aledo turned a close match into victory as the Ladycats defeated Class 4A No. 1 Decatur, 15-6, in game five to clinch the best-of-5 non-district match Tuesday night at the AHS gym.
The win elevates the Ladycats to 5-3.
In a seesaw match, Aledo won the opener, 25-20, but the Lady Eagles came back with the same 25-20 count to even the match.
The Ladycats took game three, 25-20, but the Lady Eagles once again squared the match with a 25-18 win in game four.
Aledo jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the fifth game. Later in the game, a pair of kills by Madison Goings - who led the Ladycats with 16 kills - and a stopper from Madison Lopez extended the hosts' lead to 10-4.
The Ladycats brought game five to match point after a kill by Emily Clayton, and AHS sealed the match when Erin Weiss set up Lopez for the match-winning kill.
