The Pratt Community College Lady Beavers lost 3-1 against the visiting Redlands Cougars Thursday night at the Beaver Dome.
Pratt won the opening set 27-25, coming from behind in scrappy fashion to win in sudden death. Game two was close as well. The Lady Beavers played catch-up most of the game, ultimately falling 22-25.
Game three was all Redlands as they overpowered PCC with some effective spikes. Pratt tried to send the match to game five with a nice effort in the fourth set, but fell short in sudden death, this time the 25-27 score going the Cougars way. Match: 3-1 Redlands.
The Lady Beavers find themselves at 5-13 (2-5 Jayhawk West) following the non-conference tilt. They will continue the season Saturday traveling to Hesston, hoping to get some revenge from an earlier 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Lady Larks.
