Thrall vb

It was a case of too much power Tuesday night as the Thrall Tigerettes (29-11 overall, 11-2 District) rolled to their fourth straight district win, besting Holland’s Lady Hornets 25-11, 25-11, 25-10.

After spotting the Lady Hornets a 4-1 in the first set, the Tigerettes went on a roll.  Grace Skrhak served  a pair of aces and Mia Moellenberg knocked down a kill to the back-corner leading Thrall on a 5-0 run to give the Tigerettes a 6-4 lead.  From there Thrall slowly pulled away.  A pair of aces and a Kelly Copeland block put Thrall up 11-6 and a 5-0 run led by Chandra Reed’s two blocks gave Thrall a 19-8 advantage and a service error by Holland ended the set.

The outcome of the second set was never in question.  Thrall raced out to a 10-3 lead on the strength of net play by Reed, Krenek, Bel Herrera, and Aaliyah Couch.  Krenek extended the lead to 15-5 with a pair of aces and a kill from Copeland.  Holland made a brief run to trim the lead to 23-11, but Reed scored on a tipped kill and Holland’s final hit sailed out of bounds.

Holland led early in the final set, holding a 7-3 advantage. Once the Tigerettes settled down the match changed hand.  During an 11-0 run that put the Tigerettes up 14-7, Krenek knocked out five kills and a block while Addison Leschber added a kill and an ace.  Thrall eventually extended its lead to 18-10 before McKenna Knapek served up the final seven points of the match.  Copeland added a pair of kills in the run and Reed added a kill to go with Knapek’s two aces.

Thrall closed out its regular season with a key matchup against the Granger Lady Lions (24-8, 10-3) Saturday
