Peaster puts up a fight against top-seed Godley

Volleyball playoffs

— By GREG WEBB

ALEDO — The District 10-2A champion Godley Lady Cats may have viewed its bi-district match against fourth-seeded Peaster from District 9-2A as a potential walkover en route to the Area round. If that was the case, they were profoundly mistaken, as the Lady Hounds gave Godley much more than just a warm-up for the next level of bracket play.

“I think we helped make Godley a better team tonight,” said Peaster head coach Autumn Threet. “Our girls have absolutely nothing to hang their heads about.”

After dropping the first game to the Lady Cats, Peaster answered with a set win of their own. And even though the balance of the match remained contentious, Godley hit their streaks at the right times and won the bi-district tilt, 3-1 (25-21, 16-25, 25-22, 25-20).

A tough Peaster defense made Godley work for most of its points. Junior Libero Brooke Chandler was active throughout the night and led Peaster in digs.

Both rosters sported a sizable number of underclassmen, but most of Peaster’s freshman were on the floor. Led by seniors Sandy Weyenberg and Karissa Wolfenberger, the young team made a good accounting of itself, giving Threet good reason to be proud of her current group and understandably confident of the Lady Hounds future.

In other Class 2A bracket play, Brock swept past Whitney on Monday. The Lady Eagles are set to meet the Gunter Lady Tigers, who swept Bells in a Tuesday match.

Gunter is the runner-up winner from District 12. The teams will have to wait until Saturday to play the Area match. The contest will be played at Argyle High School, with a 4 p.m. first serve.

Springtown won its bi-district match on Tuesday in Class 3A action, dealing District 5 fourth-seed Wichita Falls Hirschi a swift exit in three sets, 25-9, 25-17, 25-17.
