Golden Bears Downed by Edinboro

11/3/2017 | Women’s Volleyball | Box Score
KUTZTOWN, Pa. – The Kutztown University women’s volleyball team was defeated by the Edinboro University Fighting Scots, 3-0 (17-25, 24-26, 17-25), in a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) matchup on Friday night inside Keystone Arena.

The Maroon and Gold battled with Edinboro early in the opening frame, tying the score at five a-piece on a kill from Holly Owen. In the middle portion of the set, however, the Fighting Scot offense caught fire, using an 8-2 run to establish a 13-7 advantage.

Despite back-and-forth play for the remainder of the first set, the Fighting Scots used this margin to keep KU at a comfortable distance, finishing off the frame with three straight points to claim a 25-17 victory.

Continuing the back-and-forth play into the second set, Kutztown played its best volleyball of the evening in the middle frame. Three consecutive kills, one from Madelyn Edsell sandwiched by two more from Owen, gave the Golden Bears a 15-13 lead, prompting a timeout from the Fighting Scots.

The break in action allowed Edinboro to regain some composure, tying the score at 17-all, setting this frame up for a photo finish. Although the Fighting Scots were able to take a 24-21 advantage late, the Maroon and Gold staved off three match points punctuated by a Moyer kill to tie the score at 24-24, forcing a second Edinboro TO.

Following the timeout, the Fighting Scots made the crucial push, scoring two straight points to down KU in an exciting second set, 26-24. As a team, the Maroon and Gold had 16 kills in the second frame, hitting at a .205 clip.

Set three began in a similar competitive fashion as the first two frames, but Edinboro eventually gained the upper hand, using a 7-1 run to go on top, 14-7. Sydney Wilson, whom served excellently all match, did her best to bring Kutztown back into this set late, running off four straight tallies from the service line to make the score 21-14, but the midset push from the Fighting Scots proved too much. Edinboro finished off the final frame by a score of 25-17, sweeping the match in straight sets.

Owen led the way offensively with ten kills and a .296 attack percentage, adding a block assist in three sets of action. Jessica Howe came in right behind Owen, hitting .286 with six kills and a block assist of her own.

Defensively, Alli Henderson and Sydney Wilson each racked up double-digit digs, posting 18 and 15 to lead the KU backline. Setters Abbey James and Madisyn Kleinfelter combined for 27 assists on Kutztown’s 32 total kills.

The Golden Bears fall to 7-19 and 2-12 in PSAC competition while the Fighting Scots’ record improves to 17-8 overall and 7-7 in the PSAC.

The Maroon and Gold get back on the court tomorrow afternoon, facing off with Slippery Rock University at 1 p.m.
