The conclusion of the 7th grade match had the spectators excited and ready for more. Fans were up, the older Tigers were on the floor and the music had people moving. The excitement level was high and the 8th graders were ready to play. The warm-up was fun and energetic. Players were relaxed, motivated and primed for action. Everybody was excited and it showed from the very first serve. Three quick points offered up by Paighton Morken, set the Tigers out to an early lead that they would never relinquish. Two sideouts later and Kara Mullins put five more on the board. Coming out of a Franklin County timeout with a 9-2 lead, the Tigers continued to display a great team effort. The addition of Kirsten Urich to the line-up spurred even greater team play. By serving six points, she stretched the Tiger lead to 17-9. After a couple of sideouts, TaLiyah Baker delivered the serve that she has worked so diligently to perfect. Five consecutive points (24-13) and the game was well in hand. When the game ended, the ‘Dogs quietly tucked their tails and switched benches.
Game two did not start the way the Tigers had envisioned. Franklin County came out with the stubbornness and tenacity of a cornered Bulldog. Serving the first five points gave notice to the Tigers that the Bulldogs were not going to go away quietly. There was still some fight left in the ‘Dogs and the Tigers would need to earn their way back into the second set. Slowly but surely, the felines began creeping back into the game. Kamryn Wright began to assert her ability and put a ball down for a Tiger point. She then rotated back to serve and dished up five more. In a very quick span of time, the Tigers had clawed their way back into the lead. The set had evolved into a dog fight. Neither team willing to break. Back and forth, a single point at a time until Franklin County put four consecutive on the scoreboard. A Test timeout at 22-21 settled the anxious players and a quick clarification of roles produced the desired effect. A kill by Urich was followed by three points from Brylynn Quisenberry and Test finished the job at 25-23. That makes the 8th grade Tigers 7-0 for the season. Just ahead waits the Patriots of Union County. They will be the toughest competition that the Tigers have seen thus far. Come out and see your Test Tigers. They’re Grrrrrrreeeaaat!
