Having played 10 games in two days not to mention the three games plus the tournament the week before Douglas’ coach Carlos Chavez said his team had “no legs” when it went on the road to lay Benson Thursday.
The Lady Bobcats stumped Douglas in three straight winning 25-15, 25-12 and 25-13.
Olivarria had three assists, Nunez two kills and two digs Montoya two kills, Victoria Sandoval two aces and Avechuco three kills, five blocks and eight digs.
The coach said his team started off the week well but then struggled against Empire and had nothing left for Benson.
“Benson is a good team but I feel we could have given them a better game,” Chavez said.
The Lady Bulldogs, 2-4, hosted Bisbee on Tuesday night and will be at Safford on Thursday.
