Before the Georgetown Lady G-Men hit the court against Middletown Christian in the first round of sectional tournament play, the team has to finish off their regular-season slate.
Three games remained for Georgetown and they started a busy week off by traveling north to Clermont Northeastern High School Tuesday night.
The Lady Rockets entered play with a 16-3 record, good for the top seed in their sectional bracket. They showed just why they’re so successful against the Lady G-Men.
CNE jumped out to a 4-0 lead and saw that margin grow to a 16-5 advantage by the end of the first set. The Lady Rockets would take the victory 25-13 in set one.
Set two was much, much closer. Again, CNE jumped out to a lead but the Lady G-Men trailed just 5-2. The teams found themselves tied at seven before Georgetown pulled ahead 13-10.
The Lady Rockets called timeout at that point in the set and it seemed to work. CNE scored five straight points out of the timeout, retook the lead 15-13 and never looked back, winning the set 25-19.
Things didn’t get any easier for the Lady G-Men Wednesday night, as the Felicity Lady Cardinals came to Georgetown. After a tough five-set battle, the Lady G-Men were victorious.
They will look to ride that momentum into the match against Middletown Christian, which was scheduled to take place at Mariemont High School 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17.
