SARASOTA -- Cardinal Mooney fended off two set points in the first, and then got an ace from Sophia Hritz to win a high octane first set. Bishop McLaughlin carried 25 wins into their meeting with the Cougars, but on Tuesday night the home squad was too much to handle. 

Cardinal Mooney will square off with Clearwater Calvary Christian next week, with a trip to the State semifinals on the line.
