Army Denies Volleyball's Rally In Five-Set Win
Oct. 4, 2013
BALTIMORE - The U.S. Military Academy's volleyball team hit a combined .349 in the second and third sets and seemed in control of the match, but Loyola University Maryland redoubled its blocking efforts in the fourth and forced a deciding fifth set. The Black Knights, however, never trailed in the fifth and left Reitz Arena with a 19-25, 25-19, 25-15, 16-25, 15-8, Patriot League win on Friday night.
After putting away just one block in the second and third sets, Loyola scored points on four blocks over a six-point stretch in the fourth set, spurring a long rally.
Maloney was in on two more block immediately after the timeout - another with Reid and one on the left side with Faye Lukas - before Army (6-8, 3-1) got a sideout kill from Perri.
Lukas posted one of her match-high 18 kills, however, to sideout for Loyola, and Loyola recorded its fourth block in six points when Maloney, Reid and Jane Lukas went up against Megan Wilton.
Loyola forced another Army timeout at 16-6 after Micah Duzey placed a serve just inside the back right corner for an ace, and the Greyhounds never allowed Army to pull closer than eight for the remainder of the set.
Army, however, did not trail in the fifth set. Loyola pulled within one, 4-3, on Maloney's ninth kill of the night. The Black Knights, however, went on a 6-1 run to take control of the set.
Two Army players, Margaux Jarka and Olivia Fairfield, posted 15 kills each with Fairfield hitting .429 and Jarka .361. Perri and Wilton each had nine kills.
Faye Lukas led all players with 18 kills, and Bullock posted 12. Maloney posted nine kills and matched her career-best with eight solo blocks. Reid added six kills and four blocks.
The Greyhounds continue home Patriot League play on Saturday when they host College of the Holy Cross at 2 p.m.
