Thayer Central rallied from a 2-1 set deficit to outlast Fairbury in five sets last Tuesday evening on the Lady Titans home floor.
The Lady Titans won by scores of 25-20, 12-25, 14-25, 25-20, and 15-5.
Fairbury Lady Jeffs coach Ryan Evans was pleased with how the team played for most of the match.
“In the first half of the opening set the girls played really well. We got Thayer Central out of system with tough serving and swinging hard at the net. Once we got to 16 points we didn’t serve that tough, and we stopped swinging at the net. We started trying not to lose instead of playing to win, and that cost us the set,” Evans replied.
“In the second and third sets we came out and were fired up. The girls served the ball tough and where they wanted to. Our passes were going to our hitters and we were able to put the ball down on their side,” Evans said.

Tri County head football coach Brett Scheiding felt good with the effort put forth by his team after Friday’s 44-6 home loss to (3-0) Sutton.
“We played one of the top teams in Class C2 and went head-to-head with them for the most part,” Scheiding said.
“Going into the game we worked to take away their running game, as they are a very good team rushing the ball. They did pick up quite a bit of yards through the air, but we knew we were going to give up some yards through the air,” Scheiding remarked.
Tri County started strong on Friday evening scoring the first points of the game midway through the first quarter.
The Trojans marched down field picking up three first downs against the Mustangs on their way to the endzone.
Tri County’s scoring drive was capped off with a five-yard touchdown run by Shane Jiskra off a pitch from quarterback Wyatt Kowalski.
