ATHENS FALLS IN FIVE SETS AT NEB
 

LERAYSVILLE — Northeast Bradford took a different route to get there, but in the end prevailed in another five-set thriller over Athens here Monday night in NTL volleyball action.

The Lady Wildcats pulled out a pair of close sets — 27-25 and 25-23, but the Lady Panthers re-grouped and won the final three sets by scores of 25-19, 25-17, and 15-7.

Athens coach Heather Hanson said the night was a mixed bag for her team.

“The first two games were really close, and we pulled out wins ,which proved to me we are getting mentally tough.

“Then, the third game hit and our errors dug us into too many holes,” said Hanson. “It’s discouraging
loss.”

Athens, now 7-6, returns to action Tuesday at Troy.
