CANNONSBURG, Ky. — It was a “Pink” match and the Ironton Lady Fighting Tigers left the Boyd County Lady Lions feeling blue.

Boyd County held its “Pink Match” to raise money for breast cancer on Tuesday, but Ironton spoiled the evening by posting a 25-12, 25-11, 25-8 win.

“We worked a lot on serving on a day we were supposed to be off,” said Ironton coach Beth Campbell.

“The girls wanted to come in and work out and try to regain some confidence back into our serve.”

Andi Kratzenberg led all servers with 18 points including 14 aces. Saige Fields had 17 points and 9 aces while Maggie Thomas scored 14 points and Taylor Hannan 8 points.

Macy Wise led with 7 kills, Lexie Washington and Kratzenberg had 4 kills each and Thomas registered 12 assists.

On Saturday, the Lady Tigers fell to Nelsonville-York 25-19, 25-10, 25-16.

“Nelsonville returned all but one girl from last year. They are a great team with a quick offense, a great setter, a great libero and good outside hitters,” said Campbell.

“They make little mistakes and you can tell they have played together for a long time.”

Wise and Washington had 5 kills and 5 blocks each. Laken White had 17 digs, Thomas had 5 points and 17 assists, and Jordan Hannan added 4 points.

Ironton visits Chesapeake Wednesday with the freshman game starting at 5 p.m.

The Lady Tigers visit Raceland, Ky., on Thursday and play in a tri-match at 10 a.m. on Saturday against Wellston and Zane Trace, ranked sixth in the Division III coaches’ poll.
