Lady Bulldogs vs. Lady Tigers, a battle worth seeing

Published 5:19 pm Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Today’s rivalry match between Andalusia and Straughn’s varsity volleyball teams is one that shouldn’t be missed.

Both teams are undefeated in Class 4A, Area 3 play, and tonight’s game will decide who will likely host the area tournament in October, where the race gets heated.

The Lady Bulldogs are currently sitting at 5-4 overall, and 1-0 in their area, while the Lady Tigers are 6-2 overall, and 3-0 in area play.

Straughn beat Headland twice, and Ashford once. This will be the first time the Lady Tigers will face the Lady Bulldogs this season.

Andalusia, on the other hand, earned its first area win over Ashford, where they won in four games, 3-1. Straughn had a shutout over Headland and Ashford.

Going into the match tonight, both teams have the necessary tools to win — offensively and defensively.

Let’s start with Andalusia, shall we?
