DUBLIN — The Early Lady Horns were unable to build on the momentum of Saturday’s first-ever district victory as they fell to Dublin, 25-14, 25-21, 25-11, Tuesday night.
The straight-set loss dropped the Lady Horns to 1-3 in District 6-3A action and 9-16 overall.
“This was a hard loss for us,” said Early head coach Mitzi Bell. “The way our district is going right now we can still have a shot, but we have got to take care of the things we can control. We have the potential to be real contenders when we play like we know we can.”
Jayslin King tallied seven kills for the Lady Horns trailed by four from Kacee Gober, three from Ellie Ryan and one from Trinity Tomlinson. King also distributed seven assists, Cylee Tyson added two and Gabby Constancia chipped in one. King’s four aces led Early as well trailed by two from Constancia and one each from Tyson and Tomlinson.
On defense, Constancia tallied 19 digs trailed by four from Tyson, three from Tomlinson, two each from King and Holly Callaway and one apiece by Hope Boswell, Hallie Brinson, Tuesdi Tidwell and Morgan Luckie. Tidwell also notched three blocks, Ryan and Tomlinson chipped in two each and Gober contributed one.
Early wraps up the first half of district action at 2 p.m. Saturday when Comanche visits.
