Lady Cyclones lose on field, prevail on court

  from staff reports
  It was a simple story in the Tennessee High-Elizabethton soccer match Thursday night at Brown-Childress Stadium.
  The Lady Vikings made their shots, while the Lady Cyclones didn't in the 6-2 Tennessee High win.
  Thirteen minutes into the game, the Lady Vikes scored on a headball off a corner kick. They added two more goals in the first half for a 3-0 lead at intermission.
  This came despite leading only 8-7 in first half attempts.
  Two minutes into the second half, the Lady Vikings put the game firmly out of reach for a 4-0 lead. They would score again in the 67th minute, before Elizabethton's Samantha McClay responded with an unassisted goal at the 68-minute mark.
  Three minutes later Marla LaPorte had another unassisted goal for the Lady Cyclones. The scoring was closed out through a penalty kick by Tennessee High.
  Elizabethton now sports a record of 5-3-1, but remain undefeated in conference play at 3-0. They will return to action weather-permitting 1 p.m. Saturday when they host the Daniel Boone Lady Trailblazers.
  For the first time this season, the Elizabethton High School girls volleyball team got in the win column beating Unicoi County in four sets.
  After winning the first set 25-14, EHS dropped the second set 25-23. The Lady Cyclones rebounded to take a close third set 26-24 before putting the match away 25-13 in the final set.
  Ashley Cline had 25 service points, 10 aces and 26 digs to lead the Lady Cyclones.
  Other top individual efforts came from Michaela Pietrowski (6 kills, 5 blocks), Amanda Ward (10 assists, 5 kills) and Katrina Moore (27 digs).
  Now with a record of 1-5 in league play, the Lady Cyclones next action is scheduled for Saturday when they are to host the 2004 Cyclone Invitational at Treadway Gym.
  After winning the first set 27-25, Johnson County dropped the following three sets to Sullivan Central in girls' volleyball action. Central won by scores of 25-12, 25-16 and 25-12. The Lady Longhorns will take part in the Cyclone Invitational at EHS on Saturday.
