Lady Farmers win playoff opener against Brownsboro

by | Oct 30, 2020 | Sports

Playing in front of the Farmersville fans, Farmersville volleyball dominated in their opening game of the 4A state playoffs, sweeping Brownsboro in their bi-district match 25-8, 25-9, 25-8.

Thoughts from coach Harold Davis:

“That was the game we were kind of expecting,” Davis said. “[Brownsboro] were a fourth place team and they were kind of struggling this year to get things going. Our girls stepped up tonight and didn’t play down, which is the big [takeaway]. We stepped up and played at our level instead of dropping to a lower level.

Momentum swing of the match: 9-1 scoring run in the first set

After a slow start in the first set, the Lady Farmers were able to take control of the match over Brownsboro thanks to a 9-1 scoring run to give them an eight point lead. After this point, Farmersville didn’t trail the remainder of the match.
