The Lady Skyhawks won tonight in a dramatic 5-game set against the Ben Lippen Falcons. Missing senior starter Caroline Hudon, the Hawks played well the first two games, winning 25-13 and 25-20, but struggled in game three, losing 18-25. In game four, the Hawks again struggled to find their rhythm, while the Falcons seemed to gain confidence and intensity with each point. Game four again ended in the Falcons' favor, 18-25. Losing the coin toss, and opting to keep the same side for game five (played only to 15), the Hawks started off strong and never looked back, coming together under pressure with a 15-4 win to clinch the match. The win marks an eight-game win streak for the Skyhawks' regular season, which remains undefeated so far. Thursday the team travels to Augusta Christian.
