The Lady Tigers had no trouble with Burch in the first game, beating the Lady Bulldogs 25-10. But, Burch took the third set down to the wire, losing a close one to Chapmanville, 25-23.
The Lady Tigers then closed out the match by beating Burch 25-11 in the final set.
Chapmanville Regional Coach Angie Willis said her team is young and their inexperience shows.
“We did okay,” Willis said. “We’re still working. In the first game, I was happy with the way they played. We got a lot of kills and hits. I was really happy with Dara Berry’s serving and Katelynn Price’s hitting. She got all kinds of kills.
“We’ve not gelled yet, but, by the end of the season, I hope we can come together as a team.”
Burch Coach Jan Cisco said his team didn’t play its best in the first and third sets of the match.
“In the second game, we played really well,” Cisco said. “But, in the first and third sets, we didn’t played like we’ve practiced. If you don’t dig, set and hit, you can’t win. We’re young and Chapmanville is young. I thought Chapmanville played well.”
Burch (0-3) returns home tonight for a match against Mingo County rival Gilbert, while Chapmanville (3-4) travels to Wayne.
