Jarrell Jolts Lexington

by Mike Organ

Lexington wasted a chance to all but sew up a playoff spot when Jarrell beat the Lady Eagles for the second time in district play. This time it took five games. Lexington won games one and three by scores of 25- 21 and 28- 26 respectively. Lexington’s losses in games two, four, and five were: 1-25, 17-25, 9-15.

Game 1 - This was a good, close game with solid points scored by both teams. The largest lead of the whole game was when Lexington took the 25-21 winning point.

Game 2- Lexington changed its lineup and fell behind 0-8 quickly. They did battle back to tie the score at 18, but Jarrell stopped the Green comeback and reeled off the last seven points.

Game 3 - This was like game 1 in that neither team opened a big lead. The teams took turns getting close to a two-point lead, but could not, until Lexington pulled ahead 28-26.

Game 4 - Lexington got out to a quick five-point lead, but it was short lived. Jarrell tied the score at 10 and before fans knew it Jarrell was up 14-21. The teams then swapped points until Jarrell hit 25.

Game 5- In the short rally-points scoring game, Jarrell jumped out to a 1-7 lead. Lexington battled back to 7-8. A strategic timeout was called by Jarrell. After some scolding from their coach, Jarrell came back and scolded Lexington 9-15 for the match win.
