West Franklin won the second 25-17, 25-17.  

“Lyndon took third at our tournament on Saturday and I knew they would have liked to have played us for the championship match,” West Franklin coach Angie Corwine said. “I told the girls that Lyndon was going to be fired up to play us and they were.  

“Lyndon played a great match. They were tenacious on defense. We played well at times. We just didn’t close out the match.  

“We were up 17-13, 20-15, and 22-19 in the third set, but we started making unforced errors which cost us the match. The girls did a nice job bouncing back in the second match and taking complete control. I liked our determination in the second match.  

“We had our first league loss in the first match and that didn’t sit well with our team. I like that we wanted to avenge the loss, it shows character.”
