Last week, the Buckhorn Lady Wildcat volleyball team traveled to Pippa Passes to take on the Lady Crusaders. The two teams had not yet met this season, and decided to play a double-header on the night.
In the first game, Buckhorn took the early lead, and had to rely on extra-serves to pull out the 31-29 win. However, in the second game, June Buchanan was able to force a tiebreaker with the 25-22 victory.
The tiebreaker would be another nail-bitter as the Lady Wildcats outpaced the Lady Crusaders 26-24.
In the second match, the two teams would have to let another tiebreaker determine the winner. Buckhorn first game 26-24 (their third extra-service game), and gave up the second 25-22. The Lady Wildcats pulled out their second win of the night with a 25-21 win in the tiebreaker.
