well this but the difference is Canyon has two starters back while the Lady Dragons return all When the two teams met Monday afternoon at Cougarette both played but Round Rocks ex perience proved too much for the younger The Lady Dragons took the match in two Canyon played solid defensively but was unable to generate much of fense due to the Lady Dragons tough I guess they were serving said Cougarette Coach Donna I know we were having trouble picking the ball but I dont know why they were so hard to Weve been receiving the ball well all With essentially the same team that won Distict
