The 11 point win in the first round dwindled to a three point 25-22 win in the second, as the Lady Eagles seemed to find their footing on their home court.

The close second round was followed by a Big Spring loss in the third, as Abilene made their biggest run of the night, scoring nine unanswered points during one stretch to claim the match 22-25, forcing a fourth game. But instead of allowing the game to go to five matches, Big Spring bounced back and ended it in the fourth match 25-22.

The varsity squad is scheduled to play at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Steer Gym.
