Fillies Fall to Temple

Fillies Fall to Temple

The Panola College Fillies fell short on Tuesday to Temple in a close five set match (25-21, 23-25, 25-12, 18-25, 13-15). 

Offensively, Mikayla Ware led with 17 kills, while Mylena Testoni and Nyah Walker followed with 10 each. Maria Idjilov dished out 47 assists for the night. 

At the net, April Brown and Idjilov chipped in two block assists. Libero Hannah Floyd and Ware led the defense with 18 digs a piece, while Idjilov followed with 14. 

"Tonight was a tough loss but something our team will grow and learn from," said Head Coach Nicole Thorn. "We knew Temple would come out and play well and in order to beat them, we needed to match or exceed their energy and unfortunately we did not do that tonight. They exposed some of our weaknesses which is great because it gives us some looks on what else we need to work on. We have to remember, it's early in the season and thankfully we have time to get better at some of these things before we start conference play.  Congratulations to Temple, they are a great team and played very well tonight."

The Fillies will return to action next week as they travel to Brookhaven and Northlake College for matches at 3pm and 7pm on Tuesday, September 10th. Go Fillies!
