Brock advances to regional tourney with sweep over stubborn Lady Cats


ALEDO — The Brock Lady Eagles mixed moments of dominating brilliance with a few lapses in their Class 2A, Region II quarterfinal match against the Godley Lady Cats at Aledo High School on Tuesday. Fortunately, despite Godley’s penchant for keeping the ball in play, Brock’s solid streaks prevailed as the Lady Eagles took the match in three, 25-17, 25-17, 25-22.

After Godley took the first point of the night, the Lady Eagles reeled off six-straight points, prompting Godley’s coach to take a time out. The break proved ineffective, as Brock’s lead grew to 20-10. But two points away from winning Game 1, the Lady Eagles’ momentum stalled with a few unforced errors, though they recovered to put Godley away.

The second set saw Brock again dominate early for a 13-4 advantage, with the Lady Cats creeping back into contention later in the set.

“We’ve been preaching that all year with these girls,” said Brock head coach Keith Guyon. “When you get an opportunity to put a good team like [Godley] away, you need to finish the job.

“I just told them ‘lesson-learned,’ when we get the opportunities, we have got to put people away.”

Godley had come back from two games down to beat Pilot Point in the Area round, but Brock would have none of it on this night, holding on to a slim lead in the final set to ice the match. Outside hitters Kanyon Klein and Bailey Snow, with middle blocker Sabra Washington, provided more offense than Godley could defend.

Brock, the defending Class 2A state champions, will meet the winner of the Quitman-Paris Chisum match on Friday, at Rockwall High School. The Region II semifinal is set for a 7:30 p.m. start. 

“Even with the errors we made, the good thing about all this is we’re still playing, and we’ll try to get things corrected for the regional tournament,” Guyon said.
