The matchup of two powerful county teams finally happened Tuesday night at Lloyd E. Scott Gymnasium.
Class 3A No. 4 Brownstown Central paid a visit to Class 4A No. 10 Seymour, and both teams did not forget about this past year’s match that the Braves won after losing the first two games.
This year’s hard-fought contest had the same feel and intensity of this past year’s match, but it provided a different result — a Seymour win in three games, 25-8, 25-17, 25-22.
The Owls began the match like a team looking for revenge, racing out to a 10-4 lead behind kills by Hayden Dailey, Abby Speer and Megan Kimbley. Chandler Clark served an ace for the Owls to lead, 14-6. The Owls increased their lead to 18-8 on a kill, forcing Brownstown coach Jennifer Shade to call a timeout.
“It obviously was not what we wanted tonight,” Shade said. “It’s a big game, and it’s a learning experience, and we have to be able to play at this level when the tournament comes. This is a good match for us to come in and play to get us prepared for the tournament.”
