Brownwood took a 2-1 lead in games after closing out game three on a 6-1 run.
The Lady Rams led for most of the first half of the fourth game.
The game took on the life early on of a Lady Rams’ blowout as a kill by Allen from the left side off a Burgeson feed gave MWHS a 10-4 lead.
But Brownwood slowly crept back into the contest and followed with an 11-5 run to knot the game at 15-15.
It was all Lady Lions after that. After MWHS took a 16-15 lead, Brownwood followed with nine consecutive points to take for a 23-16 advantage.
The Lady Rams fought back with two of the next three points and added two more points after a kill each from Emily Rogers and Allen to cut the lead to 24-20.
But Brownwood sealed game four and the match after a Lady Rams’ return error.
Despite the loss, Eggleston saw progress in the final game.
“I fell we minimized our mistakes in game four,” Eggleston said. “We did have a handful of missed servers, but we also had some very aggressive serves.
“It’s kind of a give and take. I would like to have few missed serves, but at the same time I want us aggressive at the line.
“But to have four or five missed serves in a game we lost by five points, well, that is the difference in that game. That is something we can control.
(In game four) we were aggressive and talked a little bit more, and I thought we moved better on defense.”
The Lady Rams will continue non-district play at 5 p.m. Friday at Breckenridge.
