The Lady Tigers Played in their Third Round of Play-Offs

The ladies gave an exciting show in their third round of play-offs of the Mountain Valley League. Fall River who seeded number three, and Portola who seeded number two, matched up in a fierce battle. Although the Tigers fell to the Bulldogs in the very end, the ladies gave the fight of the season. The excitement was felt by all as the team stepped up their game and showed some of their best plays yet.


Las damas dieron un espectáculo emocionante en su tercera ronda de play-offs de la Liga Mountain Valley. Fall River, que sembró el número tres, y Portola, que sembró el número dos, se enfrentaron en una feroz batalla. Aunque los Tigres cayeron ante los Bulldogs al final, las damas dieron la pelea de la temporada. Todos sintieron la emoción cuando el equipo intensificó su juego y mostró algunas de sus mejores jugadas.
