The Comets rallied after losing the first two sets to win on the road and improve to 3-1 in the MIC, and 9-6 overall.

“We got off to an extremely slow start,” Eastern coach Missy Mavrick said. “But I was really proud of the girls. They fought extremely hard the whole rest of the night to get the win.

“Lizzy did a great job, especially in the last three sets. She really stepped up in the front row. Gabby was huge at the net for us. Hannah Broo’s defense was just exceptional. When she was in the back row they couldn’t put anything down.”

TIPTON DEF. KOKOMO 25-22, 25-22, 20-25, 23-25, 15-13

Alanis Jones had 19 kills to lead the Wildkats (5-11), who dug an early hole and couldn’t turn the match their way despite forcing a fifth set. Kirsten Frey had 14 kills, seven blocks and seven digs.

And Ceyanne Thomas had 14 digs and 21 service receptions.

“I felt like we struggled in the first two sets and that’s probably where we lost the match. We won a close one [Wednesday] night and we had it in hand in the fifth set, but we just got timid and played not to lose,” Kat coach Jason Watson said. “We made one too many errors and allowed them to come away with the win.”

Kacie Juday led Tipton (11-7) with 18 kills, five blocks and 23 digs.
