The St. Francis College Terriers women’s volleyball team was pounced on again today as the Bryant Bulldogs were victorious in three consecutive sets this afternoon.
The Bulldogs are now (10-22) on the season overall, with a record of (5-7) in NEC conference play. The Terriers now drop to (2-26) overall with an (0-12) record in NEC conference play, and are in the midst of a 21 game losing streak.
The Bulldogs largely dominated the first two sets on the day after winning by the scores of (25-16), and (25-15) respectively. The Terriers seemed to be out-executed throughout the first two sets and fell behind early in each.
A number of errors from the Terriers didn’t help either as that has been a problem for them throughout much of the regular season.
The Terriers fell behind and could not seem to put together enough runs to come all the way back and were in a 2-0 hole quickly.
In set number three we saw what was simply the best action of the day as the Terriers and Bulldogs went back and forth all set long.
The Bulldogs led by no more than three early on and the Terriers even took the lead at different points of the game as the set winded down.
However similar to what we’ve seen at other points of the season, the Terriers weren’t able to close out the game. After being tied 21-21 with the Bulldogs late in the set, the Bulldogs finished on a 4-0 run winning the final set by the score of (25-21).
Freshman outside hitter Natascha Scarff, who was noted in today’s preview, racked up a team high 10 kills for the Bulldogs. Scarff also had a kill percentage of .267% and 10 digs to finish the day. Senior Elena Lohr also chipped in with 9 kills and 9 digs for the Bulldogs today.
Sophomore outside hitter Domenique Gerard, who entered today’s game after getting a career high 19 kills yesterday against Central Connecticut State, continues to add to her kill total on the season after finishing the day with 7. Sophomore setter Alexa Caporuscio had a team leading 11 digs today in what was another strong performance for her.
The Terriers will return home for their final two games of the season, the first of which will take place on Saturday November 15th when they take on conference foe Robert Morris University.
