COTTONWOOD FALLS — After a rocky first match, the Lady Falcons dominated the second to split Tuesday.

West Franklin High School volleyball lost at Chase County 17-25, 25-23, 25-22 in Match 1, and took Match 2 25-13, 25-13.

While Angie Corwine, West Franklin head volleyball coach, was proud of her team for bouncing back, the Lady Falcons have areas to work on, she said.

“We either play lights out or we play like we can’t find the lights,” Corwine said. “Consistency is definitely an area that we need to improve on.”

West Franklin committed less unforced errors in the second match, and played aggressive. In contrast, miscues plagued the team in the first match.

“After winning the first set 25-17, we lost our focus,” Corwine said. “We missed a lot of serves, our hitters couldn’t put the ball in the court; we became this team who was playing not to lose instead of playing to win.”

The Lady Falcons (4-2) take the court 5 p.m. Thursday at the Wellsville triangular with Eudora.
