Mental game must improve for GF

Friday, September 29, 2017

Green Forest's match with Huntsville didn't go so well on Thursday, as the Lady Eagles defeated Green Forest 25-21, 25-10, 25-19.

"The first set was a really good game," Green Forest coach Trista Killingsworth said. "It was tied at 20-20 and we just didn't finish it. If we could have finished that set, the whole match could have been different."

Once again, Killingsworth saw areas where the Lady Tigers need improvement.

"We had better hitting and some really good digging," Killingsworth said. "But our serve-receive is still a struggle."

This is something Green Forest has been struggling with all year.

"That's a mental part of the game," Killingsworth said. "You just have to own that pass and go make something happen. They are going to have to take charge of that individually."

Killingsworth said as the season hits the midway point, Green Forest will finally be able to get in a rhythm with its schedule.

"From here on out we have three games a week," Killingsworth said. "It's go time. We have to get a win."

In the loss to Huntsville, Lexey Williams had six kills, while Alissa Smith had five. Maressa Hernandez had 18 digs.

Green Forest hosted Yellville-Summit on Monday.
