FARMINGTON — The Farmington Lady Scorpions endured yet another five-set battle, taking down West Mesa (25-22, 25-20, 23-25, 22-25, 15-13) in tonight's District 2-5A volleyball quarterfinals at Scorpion Arena in Farmington.

It was the 11th time this season Farmington played in a five-setter.

FHS jumped ahead early with some big strikes down the middle and some tip balls, and the Lady Scorps also capitalized on some off-target hits by West Mesa.

Farmington took the first two sets, but the Mustangs won some key points up front and took the next two sets.

In familiar territory, Farmington rose to the challenge and finished off West Mesa.

FHS will play at 6 p.m. Thursday at Eldorado in the District 2-5A semifinals.
