Emylee Yusko digs the ball against Canton.

The Williamson Lady Warriors fought for five close sets against the visiting Canton Lady Warriors before conceding in a back and forth final set. Williamson dropped the first two games 25-19 and 25-22.

It was at this point, with their backs against the wall in the third set, that the Lady Warriors dug deep and pulled out a close victory in the third set 25-22.

The fourth set could have gone either way with both teams scoring points off long volleys. Williamson was down late in the fourth but were able to string together enough points to come away with the victory that sent the match to a fifth set.

In the fifth, Williamson fought hard to pull off the upset but fell just short as Canton took the set 15-12.

After the loss Williamson’s overall season record sits at 3-6.

This week the Lady Warriors squared off against Cowanesque Valley on Tuesday, scores from that match will be reported next week.
