MCKINNEY – Bishop Lynch started the 2017 season the same way it ended the previous one, with a thrilling five-set match. This time however, the Lady Friars came out on top.
Bishop Lynch (1-0) went on the road Tuesday for a season-opening win at McKinney Boyd, with scores of 25-16, 20-25, 14-25, 25-21 and 15-12.
The Lady Friars – ranked No. 1 in TAPPS 6A – dominated in the opening set, but struggled to find openings against a scrappy Boyd squad in the next two and found themselves backed into a corner.
The team fought its way back to force a fifth and deciding set, then opened up strong before closing out the win.
The Lady Friars open their home schedule next Tuesday against Plano West. The varsity contest is scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm.
