Cougars Pounce In Raiders Three Set Loss

RIVER FOREST, Ill. – MSOE was looking to move their NACC record to 3-1 when they took on Concordia-Chicago last night on the road. Unfortunately, the Raiders just couldn't put things together, falling to the Cougars in straight sets on Friday evening.

MSOE – 0 (12, 18, 21)
CUC – 3 (25, 25, 25)

MSOE (7-12, 2-2 NACC) was slow to get out of the gate in set one and just weren't able to recover. Though they didn't have a negative hitting percentage in any of their three sets, they averaged just .086. Meanwhile, Concordia-Chicago (8-12, 2-2 NACC) hit .284 as a team, highlighted with a .464, 16 kill performance from Julia Spitelli. The Cougars accumulated ten more kills than the Raiders and had nine less errors. MSOE had set two tied at 12-12 and were only down two at the tail end of set three but allowed big runs that shut the door on their fourth conference contest of the season.

Kills – Italia Fields (9)
Digs – Bekah Smith (13)
Assists – Amanda Yackley (13)
Aces – Chloe Wallach and Allie Laurent (2)
