COVINGTON – The No. 5 seed Franklin Monroe Lady Jets advance in tournament play with a 3-1 Saturday OHSAA D-IV win over the No. 11 seed Riverside Lady Pirates.

“We got the win,” said Franklin Monroe coach Angie Filbrun following the Saturday match. “The seniors didn’t want to go home.”

The Lady Jets took the opening set 25-20 to lead 1-0 after one.

Set No. 2 had the teams tied at 4-4 before the Lady Jets would use a 19-4 run to lead 23-8 on their way to a 25-12 second set win and lead 2-0.

“We came out strong,” Filbrun noted. “We knew it would be a battle.”

The Lady Pirates battled back with the third set tied at 4-4, 17-17, 18-18, 19-19, 20-20, 21-21 and 22-22 before the Riverside girls would win 25-23 and trail the Lady Jets 2-1.

The fourth set saw ties at 4-4, 5-5 and 6-6 before the Lady Jets too an 11-7 lead only to have the pesky Lady Pirates knot the score at 11-11, 12-12, 14-14 and 15-15. FM took a 5-point 22-17 lead only to have the Logan County girls make it a 1-point game at 22-21 bringing a timeout from the Franklin Monroe bench.

The Lady Jets scored 2-points out of the timeout to lead 24-21 followed by two Riverside scores to trail FM 24-23, but it was the Lady Jets scoring next to win set No. 4 by a 25-23 score and advance in tournament play.

“We just let them hang around too long,” said Coach Filbrun, “but we came out on top.”
