Wylie East beats Lady Lions in four games


GREENVILLE —   The Wylie East Lady Raiders defeated the Greenville Lady Lions, 25-20, 25-15, 24-26, 25-20, in District 13-4A volleyball action Tuesday at the Lions Den.

  Wylie East is now 16-15 overall and 3-3 in district, while Greenville fell to 16-11 and 3-3.

  The first game of the match was a slugfest as the two teams battled back and forth. Wylie East jumped out to a 4-1 lead before Greenville, behind Arian Alford, scored five points in a row to grab a 6-4 advantage. Then trailing 9-6 the Lady Raiders scored five in a row behind Jocelyn Cortez.

  The first game went to the visitors.

  The Lady Raiders had an easier time in the second game, winning 25-15.

  But in the third game of the match, the Lady Lions came alive, taking a hard-fought 26-24 win behind Maygan Bloyed, Jenny Hardaway, Arian Alford and Mackenzie Cooper.

  Greenville had leads of 1-0 and 13-12 in the fourth game that was close throughout until the Lady   Raiders got the 25-20 victory to close out the match.

  Cooper and Hardaway led Greenville in kills with eight, while Bloyed had seven and Alford six.

Kalli Moyer led the Lady Lions with 13 assists while Ashley Walden tallied 12.

Alford and Bloyed served for two aces each.

  Cooper topped Greenville with 16 digs, followed by Alford with 12, Jenny Hardaway and Walden had 10.

  “We started off too slow,” said Lady Lions coach Amanda Marek. “We just were unable to fight back. I think some players stepped up tonight. We had strong defense from Mackenzie Cooper, Maygan Bloyed and Arian Alford. We have to come out and be ready for Royse City on Friday.”

  Wylie East won the junior varsity match, 25-27, 25-17, 25-22.

  Greenville took the freshman match, 11-25, 28-26, 25-11.

  Greenville’s next two games are away Friday at Royse City and Tuesday at McKinney North.
