UNIONVILLE — The Community Viqueens won the first set over the Tullahoma Lady Wildcats, but the Viqueens could not add to their lead as the Lady Wildcats rebounded to win the last three sets, including two sets by two points as Tullahoma won the District 9-AA matchup Monday night.
It was even to start the match as the first eight points were won by the non-serving side before Community (12-11, 5-5) scored three straight points to take a 7-4 lead.
With a strong net game and saves in the backcourt from some hard Tullahoma serves, the Viqueens extended their lead to 18-12 before finishing with a 25-20 win.
The Lady Wildcat serving went to the forefront in the second set.
While the Viqueen sets were limited, Tullahoma used an effective net game to take a 21-14 lead before finishing the set with four straight points and a 25-14 win.
Community looked to regain the momentum in the third set as an early 4-0 run paved the way for the Viqueens to take a 12-8 lead.
But the Lady Wildcats used their serving to tie the game and edged out to a 24-20 lead.
The Viqueens closed the margin to 24-23 before Tullahoma won the final point to win the set 25-23.
The fourth set seesawed as the lead changed hands six times.
The Viqueens led 9-5 before the Lady Wildcats bounced back to lead 14-10. Community went on a 6-0 run to take an 18-16 advantage and led 22-20, but Tullahoma bounced back to take five of the final six points and end the match.
The Viqueens return to action Tuesday with another D9-AA match at home against Central Magnet.
