Lady Cats sweep BC to stay perfect in 21-3A

ORANGEFIELD — Senior experience paid dividends for the Orangefield Lady Bobcats as they remained perfect in District 21-3A play Tuesday night by defeating the Bridge City Lady Cardinals in three straight games at Bobcat Gym to start the second half of district.

The Lady Cardinals played the Lady Bobcats extremely tough but their youth showed down the backstretch of each game.

Jennifer McManus powered the Orangefield (21-5, 7-0) arsenal, tallying 14 kills. Setter Rylie Granger produced in many ways, finishing with 15 service points, three aces and seven kills of her own.

The Lady Bobcats have played 22 sets in 21-3A play and now have won 21 of them.

The Lady Cardinals (3-4 in 21-3A play), looked like they were in control of Game One, only to see the Lady Bobcats wrap the game up by scoring 13 of the final 16 points.

Holly Granger led the Lady Bobcat rally as she put together seven straight points, including four aces. Granger had six points and an ace in the spurt while McManus had six kills in the first game.

The Lady Bobcats extended a 11-10 lead to 20-13 in Game Two and then held off a late Lady Cardinal rally.

Game Three was nip-and-tuck for the most part. With the game tied at 18-18, Orangefield closed out the match by tallying seven of the last nine points. Taylor Benoit had three of her six kills for the Lady Bobcats in the decisive game.

Jessi Glover paced the Lady Cardinals on offense with seven kills. Hannah McAnelly and Amanda Ashby had six kills apiece while Alexus Henry had five and Skylar Kahla three.

Destiny Ewing posted seven service points for Bridge City. Olivia Bass had six points and three aces. Baili Thibidaux had five points and an ace and Caylin Choate notched five points.

Morgan Moss had four kills for the Lady Bobcats while Marisa Bishop contributed three.

Holly Granger finished with nine points and five aces. Megan Burton had seven points and an ace. Hayleigh Turley posted five points and an ace. McManus also had five points while Kacey LeBlanc, who had another stellar night on defense, finished with three points and an ace.

The Lady Bobcats will continue 21-3A action Friday night when they visit Hamshire-Fannett. The Lady Cardinals will have their second-half bye Friday and will return to Tuesday at home against Hardin-Jefferson.
