POMONA — Inconsistency plagued the Lady Falcon volleyball team in back-to-back days of matches.

West Franklin fell twice at Olpe on Monday, and then got swept Tuesday at home against Osage City.

Olpe beat West Franklin without dropping a set in two matches, 25-14, 25-16 and 25-12, 25-21.

Osage City stunned the Lady Falcons in Tuesday’s first match, 25-16, 25-7. West Franklin made its opponent work in the second match, but the result was the same, 25-27, 25-14, 25-22 to Osage City.

“We are still dealing with being inconsistent,” Angie Corwine, West Franklin High School head volleyball coach, said. “We are either fighting in very close sets or we are getting blown away. We are making too many unforced errors, and we don’t make the other team earn many points.”

The Lady Falcons (4-8) look to right the ship at their home tournament starting 8:30 a.m. Saturday at WFHS, 511 E. Franklin St., Pomona.
