The Lady Cardinals led Game One 11-9 but the Lady Bobcats stormed back to take it by scoring 16 of the next 21 points.
Bridge City snared a 10-6 edge early in Game Two. Trailing 17-16, the Lady Bobcats tallied six of the next seven points and then held off the Lady Cardinals.
Orangefield dominated the Game Three action as they jumped out to a 9-2 edge and then ran off eight out of the next 10 points to snag a commanding 17-4 cushion.
The UIL state Class 3A volleyball playoffs will start next week with the bidistrict round Monday and Tuesday. The Lady Bobcats will have a bye that round and will play in the area round sometime between Nov. 1-3 against either the runnerup out of District 24-3A or the third-place team from District 23-3A.
