The Mexia Ladycats fell to 2-5 in district play after falling to the Fairfield Lady Eagles for the second time this season Tuesday night, 25-19, 25-21, 25-12.
The first two sets of the match were relatively close as the Ladycats stayed to within a point or two throughout each game, but Fairfield seemed to find a way to forge ahead at the end.
Aniyah Jelks, McKenzie Bain, Katilyn Gipson, Brianna Forge and Alannie Connor all played well for Mexia Tuesday night. Nicole Williams came up with some big plays in the second set that helped give the Ladycats the lead a couple of times in the game. Gipson and Bain showed strong play near the net as well.
