RICHLAND — Touchet fell behind, caught up and then fell back again here Thursday night as Liberty Christian survived 27-25, 25-14, 23-25, 18-25, 15-11 in a Southeast B District Southern Division volleyball match.
"We fought back; we played tough," Touchet coach Stephanie Paulson said. "We played better than we have been playing, but we couldn’t quite get it done in the end.
"In every game, we were usually down by six points or more, but we always fought back," Paulson said.
Reana Butler had six kills and a block for the Indians, Hillary Intenarelli had three kills and Carley Frazier led the way with 11 assists.
The loss dropped the Indians to 2-7 overall and 2-4 in the division heading into a Tuesday cross division home match against Rosalia. The Patriots raised their Southern Division record to 5-1.
