HAMBURG, NY – After opening the match with a 25-20 win, Hilbert College dropped three straight sets to Penn State Behrend in women’s’ volleyball October 2. With the win, Behrend remained perfect in league play (4-0) while Hilbert lost their first AMCC match (3-1).
The game’s second set was the most exciting game of the match. The Hawks found themselves down 19 – 9 and they cut it to 23-20 before it went into extended play. In a see-saw battle, Behrend came out of top 31-29. The last two sets went to Behrend, but not easily – 25-20 and 25-16.
With a balanced attack across the front line, Hilbert was successful keeping the Lions on their toes. Allegra Johnson led with nine kills, followed by Chelsea Reischuck’s eight, Devan Jonathan’s seven and Jordan Botsford’s six.
Botsford also was credited with three solo blocks and five digs. The Hawks again continued to earn points directly off service aces, with Johnson sneaking in three aces, followed by Jonathan and Reischuck’s two. Memminger also was credited with 29 assists.
The Hawks have seven days off before their next contest at Oswego, October 10.
