The Northwest Lady Texans rallied back from a two-game deficit Tuesday to defeat the Lewisville Lady Farmers, 25-20, 17-25, 15-25, 25-20, 15-12.
The Lady Texans made two hitting errors and missed three serves in the opening set. They were unable to continue the trend in the second and third sets. Northwest had a combined nine hitting and five service errors in the two games.
“We just lost focus and started sitting back and making errors,” said head coach Dayna Horak. “They outplayed us in the second and third matches.”
Members of the team also realized the sense of urgency.
“We all started getting in the game, and then we fell down in the second and third and we realized we needed to turn it around,” senior Jessica Sanders said. “We learned to expect the unexpected.”
Shelby Stinnet led the Lady Texans with 10 kills. Jessica Sanders made nine kills, and Jaxie O’Dell added four. O’Dell also led the team in assists with three.
“This team is learning, and this was a real turning point,” Horak said. “They’re getting smarter.”
Brooke Berryhill just wants the team to stay energized.
“All the energy we had this game; we need to carry over to the next one,” Berryhill said.
Northwest will head to San Marcos Tournament this weekend and will return home Tuesday to face Fort Worth Christian.
