The night clearly belonged to the Rivera Lady Raiders.

Make no mistake, Los Fresnos never made it easy, yet Rivera seized the momentum from the very beginning and swept past the Lady Falcons 25-14, 25-19, 25-23 in Tuesday’s showdown at Rivera between undefeated co-leaders in the District 32-6A volleyball race.

It was Los Fresnos’ first loss in district in more than two years. The Lady Falcons won the 32-6A title during each of the past two seasons with a 14-0 record.

“Rivera was ready for us,” Lady Falcons coach Becky Woods said. “We came out too nonchalant and started out the whole match wrong. You could tell that from the very first point (when we served into the net). From there, it just went downhill.

“I give Rivera credit,” Woods added. “They were ready for us tonight. We’ll see them again at our place (in the second round of district).”

Across the gym, the Rivera players, coaches and fans were in full celebration mode.

“Our girls played awesome tonight. They did a fantastic job,” Lady Raiders coach Elizabeth Avelar-Guerra said. “They were talking to each other and communicating, they were playing strong defense and they were hitting well.

“They played together like a real team,” she added. “I haven’t seen them play that well for quite awhile. They really came together tonight.”
