Murphy girls fall in five-set thriller
Pilot Mountain – Murphy's volleyball team staged a furious comeback Thursday night only to fall just short in the second round of the playoffs.
The Lady Bulldogs dropped the first two sets to East Surry one night after winning a five-set match at home and mere hours after a long bus ride. But they found the energy to win two straight before the Lady Cardinals took the fifth set, ending a terrific season for Murphy in a 25-15, 25-19, 19-25, 19-25, 15-11 thriller.
Murphy finishes the season 20-3. For more on the end of the Lady Bulldogs' season, check out the Nov. 3 edition of the Cherokee Scout.
