The Lady Bulldogs won the first two sets handily, at 25-23 and 25-17, but the 1-6 Skiers started to turn things around in set three, winning it 25-15.

The fourth was a true skirmish as the pair took it into extra points, Aspen walking away with the 28-26 win.

And, with the pressure on in the all-important fifth set, the Moffat County girls came back to triumph, 15-5.

Mattie Jo Duzik led the squad in kills with eight and was credited with seven blocks. Duzik, Maddy Olinger and Bailey Kurz each had 100 percent service — the team went 95 percent overall — while Morgan Lawton had three aces.

Charli Earle achieved 105 total sets during the evening with no errors.

The Lady Dogs came out hard but faced tougher competition Thursday in Olathe, where they lost, 3-1, against the Pirates, with their best set 25-21 in the third, with Olathe winning the first and fourth 25-18 and the second 25-17.
