Laurel’s JV suffered its first loss of the year to the Flowers Jaguars Team. The game went back and forth but the Jaguars overcame the challenge from the Spartans and took both wins. In the losing battle, the Spartans found a hitter and blocker in Freshman, Rena Ngobi who came off the benched and helped Laurel put together a comeback with two digs and three blocks. Leila Word mounted the comeback by scoring Laurel’s final seven points and she not only tied the game at 23 but Laurel took the lead. The Jaguars called for a replay on the referee’s call which reversed the point and at that time the Spartans succumbed to the Jaguars by losing the final two points and the game by a score of 23-25.
The Lady Spartans will be ready to rebound on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at Friendly High School. Please come out and support our team.
