The Lady Jackets hosted Shadow Creek High School for Homecoming this last Friday in a match that held playoff implications for the Yellowjackets! The Yellowjackets were more than up to the task as they defeated the Sharks and clenched a playoff berth.
The varsity team started the match with a few butterflies but as the match progressed the Yellowjackets began to swarm. Set one went to the Lady Sharks by a score of 22-25 but not without the Lady Jackets opening the door allowing the doubts to creep into the Shark brains. Set two was a battle as the two teams exchanged point after point until Alana Perez found an opening for the Yellowjackets 1000th kill of the season and took control of the set. Galena Park won set two, 28-26. Set three was nearly a repeat of set two as the two teams exchanged points, but Galena Park fed the pin hitters and snagged their second win by a 26-24 victory. Set four was all about the Jackets as they made big play after big play! Every player at some point made some unbelievable play that just nailed the coffin lid down tighter and tighter. Finally, Alana Perez stepped back and served a hard, well-placed serve that put the Sharks on their tail fin and forced the Shark error and the GP victory. Set four was 25-23 Galena Park. With this victory the Lady Jackets are fourth in the district and find themselves in the playoffs for the first time in 11 years. Alana Perez led the Lady Jackets with 22 kills, but the entire team made this win a reality!
The Black team played another great game this week against Anthony Aguirre Middle School bringing home a 16-6 victory. The first half was rough, but the team ramped up the energy in the second half and held on for the win. Alfredo Martinez and Mauricio Perez played solidly on the offensive line sealing the edge. Arturo Garcia and Antonio Zamora did well pacing the offense and moving the chains. Defensively, Edgar Rios and Oscar Galvan pressure the Bulldog offense resulting in two force fumbles by Rios and two recoveries by Galvan. Brice Hernandez, Mauricio Perez, and Gerardo Hernandez shored up the middle of the defense.
