In the first match, Lady Hawks stormed the court quickly dispatching the score to a 10-4 lead.
Alysha Perez came into the game and immediately spiked her way to bring the score to 11-5. The Texans only had one player with the kind of height usually seen in Wimberley, but she was quickly shut down by Hawk blockers, Anna Bettersworth and Paige Bower.
The Hawks executed all aspects of the game well with Regan Mickey steadily playing her position and placing tips into Wimberley’s open court.
Spikes from Faith Hasness, Anna Bettersworth and Landry Hollums went undefended to drive the score to 16-9. Hasness spikes caught the Texans off guard as she crammed the ball straight down the sidelines. Wimberley tried to hit open court on the Hawk side only to find Sam York there with a dig. York’s protection of the center court brought the score to 20-10.
The first match ended with a 25-12 win for the Hawks.
The second match was a repeat of the first as the Hawks immediately sunk their talons into the Texans.
