CALEDONIA — Momentum can be an amazing and inexplicable force.
Believe in it or don’t, but Thursday’s second-round matchup between the Lafayette Lady Commodores and Caledonia Lady Confederates made both squads subscribe to the theory.
Staring at elimination after dropping the first two sets at Caledonia, the Lady ‘Dores made perhaps their most impressive showing of the season, rallying to force a decisive fifth set.
While Lafayette eventually lost the match 3-2 (25-18, 25-15, 17-25, 13-25, 15-11), LHS first-year coach Aimee Scribner and Lady ‘Feds coach Samantha Brooks both pointed to the shift in momentum after the second set as a changing point in the Class 1 match.
The Lady Commodores (17-8 overall), by their own admission, came out flat against Caledonia.
But, after dropping the first two sets rather convincingly, Lafayette regrouped during the stoppage and made a run at the Lady Confederates (23-4). (October 12, 2012, Page 6A)
