Third Set Falls Apart for Lady Tigers

The Republic volleyball team didn’t stay on the mat after getting knocked down to start the night at Carthage. But after a second-set comeback, the Lady Tigers were unable to hold onto their momentum in a conference road loss, 16-25, 25-17, 12-25.

The slow start has been a frequent theme this season, according to coach Allison Davis. “We have to be ready to go – that first serve receive or the first set,” she said. “We cannot have a first set to get a warm-up.”

The turnaround in the second set could hardly have been more dramatic for the Lady Tigers. With the score tied 10-10, they stepped on the gas, upping their intensity and pulling away by winning 15 of the last 22 points.

“They wanted it and you could tell their excitement and their enthusiasm,” Davis said.

But in the third set, Carthage reasserted itself from the beginning, cruising to a 25-12 win. “We were inconsistent. Either our passing was on and our hitting was off, or our hitting was on and our passing was off,” said Davis. “[We need to] find that consistency and be a team that can finish.”

Rylee Moseman had six kills to lead Republic and Chelsea Mobley led the team with seven digs.

Republic falls to 7-9-1 overall. They’re 1-3 in conference play.
