The Ironton Lady Fighting Tigers were facing quite a puzzle, but they finally figured out where all the pieces went.

Ironton rallied from two sets down to beat the Lady Panthers 20-25, 23-25, 25-23, 25-16 and 15-2 in the tiebreaker set.

“We played flat and never had much excitement to spark us. Chesapeake came at us with a purpose and tried to take the W,” said Ironton coach Beth Campbell.

“I’m not sure how we pulled it off. I’m still puzzled but I’m glad we figured out how to win.”

Jordan Hannan and Maggie Thomas combined for 33 assists. Lexie Washington had 12 kills, Andi Kratzenberg and Saige Fields 9 each and Macy Wise 5 kills.

Laken White had 16 digs, Hannan 13 and Kratzenberg 8.

Fields led all scorers with 23 including 14 in the final game that featured 12 aces. Hannan had 11 points with 5 aces with Kelly Ferguson and Thomas getting 8 points and Kratzenberg 5.

“My young ones played well,” said Campbell.

Kelsey Huff had 12 points and Macy Allen 11 points and 15 kills to lead the Lady Panthers. Kenzi Moore added 7 kills, Carrie Brock 17 assists and Sarah Brumfield 11 digs.

In the junior varsity match, Chesapeake won 25-20, 25-23.

On Thursday, Chesapeake plays at River Valley in a league game and Ironton visit Raceland, Ky. in a memorial match for Raceland student Tyler Baldridge who was killed two years ago in a 4-wheeler accident.

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