It was an on and off performance by the Lady Cotton Pickers when they took on Miller this past Friday. But in the end, junior Mia Tamez gave a final spike to complete a comeback victory over the Lady Bucs.
"I'm not even sure what happened in the middle there," Coach Lolly Arevalo "The second game we just let up. Hats off to Miller. They were digging every shot we made."
Robstown pulled away from an early 5-5 tie in the first set with a 25-9 final. But Miller countered with 25-22 and 25-13 wins in sets two and three.
The Lady 'Pickers re-grouped and executed better in set four, to take a strong 25-10 win, forcing the decisive fifth set.
The Lady Bucs kept things even for much of the first half, but Robstown pulled away from a 7-7 tie, to take the set 15-11.
"We kept fighting," Arevalo said. "It was a close one here in the end. But a win is a win. We'll take it."
Robstown will return to action when they travel to Lyford on Tuesday.
