The Edmonson County Lady Cats hosted the Whitesville Trinity Lady Raiders at home tonight, September 19, 2023, and lost in a 3-0 sweep. Edmonson had a few adjustments in the lineup tonight which seemed to cause some difficulty for the Lady Cats, as the Lady Raiders jumped out with a 7-0 lead in the first set. Edmonson was able to pull out of that rut and went on a five-point run and were able to keep the score close, until Trinity went on another run to force a Lady Cat timeout at 17-11. Edmonson got the ball back at 21-12, and gave the first set to Trinity at 25-14.
In set two, Edmonson got off to another rocky start as Whitesville was able to quickly put 12 points on the scoreboard, forcing a Lady Cat time out at 12-3. Edmonson got the ball back immediately after the timeout, but lost it again and had a hard time getting it back. Another Lady Cat timeout was called at 24-9, and Trinity took set two 25-10.
In the third set the Lady Cats were able to keep the score closer for the first half of the set, until Trinity went on yet another run and forced a Lady Cat timeout at 18-7. With hard kills from Trinity, the Lady Cats had a hard time recovering and lost the set 25-14, resulting in a loss for the game.
The Lady Cats are now 4-12 on the season and are scheduled to take on Breckinridge County away on Thursday, September 21, 2023 at 7:30 pm.
