Loboettes Struggle at Lubbock Monterey and Move to Three-and-Seven

loboloyaltyIt was a struggle for the Loboettes on Tuesday as Lubbock Monterey hung 15 service aces to defeat Levelland 25-14, 25-14, and 25-14 to move the Levelland Loboettes record to three-and-seven on the year.

Levelland was in the hunt all three games as they were down 12-to-11 in game one before the Lady Plainsmen out scored Levelland 13-to-three down the stretch.

Lubbock Monterey won the kill column 18-to-17 and the block column five-to-two but it was service that hurt the most.

Lubbock Monterey collected 15 ace service against four faults while Levelland scored just five aces against seven faults.

Kazzi Spears led the kills with five while Annie Dewbre added three kills and Kaylee McCarter added two kills and an ace block.

Adaline Utley and Gisel Gonzales served for four points each while Utley and Chloe Dunn picked up two aces each.

Kinzi Hudson was the go to Lady Plainsmen as she finished with six kills and 12 service points to go along with four aces.  Addison Nieman added three kills and three blocks while Taylor Salsky added 11 service points in the win.

Levelland opened the tournament with back-to-back pool wins defeating Littlefield 25-15, 23-25 and 25-19 and Amarillo River Road 29-27, and 25-20.

Levelland would then run into Andrews once again and the Loboettes struggled with the Lady Mustangs again dropping the contest 25-12 and 25-19.

They would wrap up Saturday and the tournament with a wild match against the Sanford-Fritch Lady Eagles.

The Lady Eagles ran away with game one 25-to-14 but the Loboettes returned the favor winning the second game 25-to-15.  Game three was blow by blow but the Loboettes would drop game three 25-23 and the match two-and-one.

Overall, the Levelland Loboettes went three-and-four over the tournament and move to three-and-six on the season.

“We did some good things and got better,” said Loboette Coach Kayla Koerner late in the day Saturday. “Lots of things to work on but we played good solid teams and we got better.”

Levelland Survives Wild One with River Road to Move to Two-and-Oh at Shallowater

loboloyaltyThe Levelland Loboettes had to survive a wild one with the Amarillo River Road Lady Cats but managed to hang on for a 29-27 and 25-20 sweep to move to two-and-oh in pool play at the Shallowater Tournament.

Levelland built a 17-to-three lead in game one on a 10 point service run from Chloe Dunn but that lead evaporated quickly as Amarillo River Road countered with 13 point run from Jenna Downs.  That turned it back into a blow by blow game until Levelland managed to escape with a 29-to-27 win in the front game.

Despite trailing the Lady Cats midway through the second, Levelland managed to pull away late on a six point run from Hallie Satterwhite and with a 25-to-20 win in the second game, the Loboettes completed the sweep  29-27 and 25-20.

Levelland out-killed the Lady Cats 18-to-10 while the block column went even at one each.

The Loboettes hung up 10 service aces against seven faults while River Road collected eight aces against four faults.

The win moves Levelland to two-and-two on the young season and two-and-oh in pool play at the 2018 Shallowater Invitational Tournament.

That grants the Loboettes a bid to at least the Silver Medal Bracket on Saturday and a possible trip to the Gold Medal Bracket as they have one pool game left, that being against the Andrews Lady Mustangs.

Levelland takes on Andrews around 1:30pm Friday afternoon and you can catch the action on KLVT AM1230 and!
