The Lady Horses volleyball team fell Thursday night to the Spring Creek Gators, as another injury plagued the Horses.

Despite several rallies, Clinton would go down 3-1 in this match up.

“Tonight was a rough night, we just couldn’t get anything together,” said CHS coach Jennifer Edgerton.

Not only was it a rough night, but an equally rough loss, as the loss meant another conference loss for the Horses.

The Gators controlled the tempo during the match early, winning by their biggest margin of the night in set one. They claimed the win in this set 25-17.

The Dark Horses fought hard in set two being down 18-11 at one point before rallying to bring it as close as 22-20. The Gators then took a timeout and got control back after it ended and cleaning up set two 25-20.

CHS matched Spring Creek’s performance in set three. This was the only set the Horses claimed victory in, winning it 25-20.

The Horses lost momentum in the fourth set after an unexpected injury, leaving the Horses with only five on the court and unable to comeback and falling during set four 25-18.

Taylor Spell lead in kills for the night with 17 and an ace, Jasmine Ford lead in blocks with 4 singles and 2 doubles and Naomi Miller finished as the digs leader with 5.

The Dark Horses fall to 10-10 overall while they sit at 6-4 in the conference. They will be back in action for a non-conference game Monday against Harrells Christian Academy.
