“The girls played good the second game but didn’t focus in the first game,” said Logan County head coach Steve Lyne. “They’ve got to make sure they don’t lose their focus in these district games and stay prepared for the games ahead.”
“The girls played great in the first game. The game had great intensity and they were out there doing their thing and looking good,” said Russellville head coach Terricka Quarles. “We had some errors in the second game and it took us a while to bounce back mentally but they played good. We didn’t really well on our serving tonight we just need to work on being consistent and having a lot of touches.
The Lady Panthers will face Todd County Central on Thursday at home and the Lady Cougars will face South Warren at a home game on October 2.
