Last week, the Hazard Lady Bulldogs hosted the Lady Cougars of Letcher Central in a game of volleyball. The Lady Bulldogs had several big rallies during the contest, but could not come away with enough wins to take the match.
Things were close in the early going of the first game, but midway through, Letcher Central began to get a handle on the momentum. The Lady Cougars were strong enough down the stretch to pull out the 25-16 win.
In game two, Letcher Central started strong, but a timely timeout by Hazard got the Lady Bulldogs back on track. As the game got near the end, the Lady Cougars reasserted themselves, and moved to the 2-0 lead with the 25-21 win.
The third game was played in a similar fashion as the second, but this time the Lady Bulldogs would not give up the momentum. Hazard was able to force a fourth game in the match with the 27-25 win.
The fourth game in the match would not stand up to the previous three as Letcher Central would lead from start to finish. The Lady Cougars took the game, and the match, with the impressive 25-6 win.
