Cougars Clip the Falcons


Playing Florida College at their gym is always exciting and this time was no different. The Lady Cougars displayed poise and confidence as they went up against a strong Falcon team along with their raucous crowd. During set one the Cougars fell behind, but never by more than a few points, fighting their way to win 25-21. During set two CCC found themselves behind 3-8 before Coach Denny called a time out and challenged the squad to shore up their defense. The Cougars did just that and were able to tie the score 12-12. During the rest of the set, neither team got more than a two point edge over the other. There were some outstanding plays made by both sides as the lead went back and forth until finally CCC finished it, 28-26. During the final set, the Cougar defense again dominated play with some outstanding digs and dives along with solid blocks. They took the final set 25-19 to win the match. Coach Denny remarked "tonight was a total team effort with everyone on the court contributing during play. Our passing was solid so we were able to run our offense, and defensively we really brought our play up during set two. Florida College is a very strong team and well coached and it is always tough to play at their gym. I am extremely pleased with our team's effort tonight."
