Brook Hill volleyball: Anderson's 12 kills, 6 blocks too much for Dallas Lutheran

BULLARD —

 

 The Brook Hill Lady Guard and Dallas Lutheran Lady Lions squared off in a TAPPS 4-3A volleyball matchup, with sole possession of second place on the line behind undefeated McKinney Christian.

The matchup took four games before Brook Hill took the 3-1, win at Herrington Sports Complex in a well-played on Tuesday night.

The first and fourth games were tightly contested and the Lady Guard winning by identical 26-24 scores. Dallas Lutheran evened the match up at one-game apiece winning game two, 25-21. The third game was a Brook Hill 25-19 score to up the Lady Guard season mark to 10-5, and 4-1 in league play.

Brook Hill junior, Samantha Anderson truly made her presence known throughout the game but the first and fourth games, took control when the Lady Guard needed her most.

Game one, Anderson served a seven-point run to jump out to a 13-4 Brook Hill lead.

Lady Lion, Lila O’Brien made a six-point run at service including two aces just before teammate, Alex Avera served out two aces and tied the game up at 18-18.

Lexi Crenshaw took service for the Lady Guard after a Anderson kill and a 24-24 tie.

Crenshaw then served an unforced error by DL and ended the game with a service ace.

Brook Hill was their own worst enemy in the game two loss, stumbling with 16 unforced errors to aid to good service work form Dallas Lutheran’s Kelly Carson, Neicy Hunt, and the front line play of Cami Shannon.

Brook Hill never trailed in game three, taking a 12-4 lead behind the service work of Deserae Rowan and Anderson. Rowan built a 13-4 lead, while Anderson rattled off a five-point run that included three aces and a decisive 21-12 advantage.
