AMBRYANNA MOORE AND L-E will host Northwestern in Tuesday's second round 4A Upper State tournament match.

It was a mixed bag for Kershaw County volleyball on Thursday night.

Camden, the Region 4-AAA top seed, fell to fourth seeded Palmetto in a first round Upper State match played inside the Dog Pound.

Across the river, Lugoff-Elgin, the top seed from Region 4-4A, needed four sets to get past visiting Easley to advance to the second round of the Upper State tournament.

Lugoff-Elgin won the first two sets, 25-23 and 25-18 before Easley came back to take the third, 25-17. Jessica Mullins’ Lady Demons avoided a fifth set tie-breaker by winning the fourth set, 25-21.

Camden got off to a solid start in its match against the Mustangs as Paige Wilson’s charges won the first set, 25-16, before dropping the second set, 27-25, and winning the third set, 25-21. Palmetto came back to take the fourth, 25-20, to even things and send the match to a 15-point, fifth set tie-breaker. The visitors then completed the upset with a 16-14 victory to advance to Tuesday’s second round pairing at South Pointe.

Lady Demons stay at home: By virtue of its 3-1 victory over Easley, Lugoff-Elgin will play Tuesday’s second round match at home against Northwestern. The starting time is set for 6 p.m.

Northwestern, a second seed, knocked off Byrnes, 3-1, last Thursday.

The winner of the Northwestern-L-E contest will face the winner between three-time defending 4A state champion Hillcrest and Nation Ford on Thursday. Should the Lady Demons and Hillcrest win, the match will be played in Simpsonville. Should L-E win and Nation Ford pull off the upset, the second round match will be played inside the Demons Den.

Lady Knights play tonight: North Central, the Region 4-AA champion, cruised to a 3-0 win over visiting Fairfield Central last Wednesday in a AA Upper State first round pairing.

Andy Johnson’s Lady Knights will host Chesnee, a second seed, tonight at 6 p.m. inside The Castle in Boonetown. Chesnee took down Ninety-Six in four sets in its opening match.

Should North Central come away with the win and should Mid-Carolina, a number one seed, defeat visiting Crescent tonight, North Central will travel to Mid-Carolina for Wednesday’s third round match. Should Crescent pull off the upset, the Lady Knights will be at home Wednesday.
