    After five matches on Saturday in a runner-up performance in the Citizens Bank Volleyball Throwdown at Bath County, Nelson County looked like it might be feeling the aftereffects when the Cardinals dropped a set right out of the gate Monday to visiting Bardstown.

    But it was the Tigers — winners of four of six matches in tournament play at Anderson County on Friday and Saturday — who ended up running out of gas, as the Cardinals rallied from a 25-13 first-set loss to take the next three, 25-19, 25-20, 25-19, and win the match in four.
