MAVS GIVE DORMAN A GOOD FIGHT - LOSE IN 5: 25-23,21-25,25-22,21-25,11-15

 With a playoff berth assured, the Lady Mavs took to the hardwood again on Tuesday night looking to improve their seeding heading into the state tournament.  But it would be no easy task with defending state champion Dorman visiting MHS Gym.

The match started off very much a back and forth affair with neither team able to take control until the Mavs were able to put a nice run together late in the game, and just like the first matchup earlier in the year at Dorman, the Mavs took game 1, 25-23.

In game 2, the Cavaliers stormed out to a quick 8-4 lead and eventually pulled ahead by 5 midway through the game forcing a Mavs timeout.  The Mavs were able to regroup and close the game to 1 but the Cavs were able to pull out the victory 25-21.

However, in Game 3 the Lady Mavs regained their footing and with some solid hitting from their outsides Heather Granger (18 kills for the match) and Katie Faith (also 18 kills), good sets by Kayla Whitten (46 assists), and strong defense from Libero Dana Landers (41 digs), defensive specialist Emily Cooper (22 digs) and Granger and Faith (23 digs each), the Mavs took game 3, 25-22.

The defending state champs were able to hold off the Mavs in game 4, 25-21 and send the match to a deciding fifth set.  In set 5, the Mavs looked shaky early falling behind quickly 5-0.  After a timeout, the Mavs were able to storm back and tie the game at 9.  But some smart hitting to the corners by the Cavaliers allowed the visitors to take game 5, 15-11.

It was a fantastic volleyball match on both sides.  The Mavs have the rest of the week off before taking on Riverside at MHS next Tuesday night - SENIOR NIGHT!  Please come out as we honor our 4 seniors and send them off with a victory!  Go Mavs!
