The Lady Raiders weren’t as sharp as they wanted to be in their Tuesday night match against Burgin, but they played well enough to take a 2-0 victory over the Lady Bulldogs.
The game was an important one for the McCreary squad as they were coming off a tough loss to Russell County last week, and preparing for their first District match of the season tonight.
Burgin (2-11) proved tougher than their record indicates by taking an early lead against McCreary in the first game of the best-of-three match. The Lady Raiders recovered and went on to win the game 25-15.
The second game of the match was more in McCreary’s favor, but sloppy play still was evident as the Lady Raiders won 25-16 to improve their record to 5-3 on the season.
Tonight (Thursday) the Lady Raiders will play their first District match of the season when they host the Wayne County Lady Cardinals (4-4) at 6:00 p.m.
