Lukas' Career-High 29 Kills Not Enough As Manhattan Edges Volleyball
Oct. 7, 2012
BALTIMORE - Faye Lukas set a career-high in kills for the second weekend in a row, posting 29 on Sunday afternoon, but Manhattan College edged the Greyhounds in five, 17-25, 25-21, 25-22, 18-25, 15-11, in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action at Reitz Arena.
Lukas improved her career-high by one. Her previous best came last Saturday night in a five-set win over Iona College.
Today, Lukas had six in the first set and then exploded for 10 in the second, although Manhattan won that frame to even the match, 1-1.
The Jaspers (10-10 overall, 5-4 MAAC) took a 2-1 lead by winning the third set when the limited Lukas to just three kills opposite three errors, holding the Greyhounds to a .128 hitting percentage.
Loyola (10-8, 3-4) had its most effective offensive set in the fourth, hitting .436 while committing just three errors and putting away 20 kills. Lukas had six in that set, while Jac Bullock and Lauren Arnold each had three.
Mindy Maloney had a solo block to start the deciding fifth set, one of her two solos and six total in the match, but Manhattan then scored four in a row, three coming on Loyola hitting errors.
Loyola got back within a point, 6-5, with a Tina Catanach kill, but the Jaspers scored three of the next four to lead 9-6 after a Loyola serving miscue.
In addition to Lukas' 29 kills, Maloney had 12, hitting .476, and Bullock added 10. Arnold put away seven, and Catanach posted six.
The Greyhounds had an edge in kills (71-52), hitting percentage (.246-.183), aces (5-3), digs (87-73) and blocks (11-8), but came out on the wrong side of the final score.
Loyola's 11 total blocks were a season-high. Maloney was in on six and Bullock assisted on five.
Sydney Volovski led Manhattan with 14 kills, while Ellie Wiekamp added 12.
The Greyhounds who closed a four-match homestand with the loss, hit the road for their next five, beginning with a quick rematch against Manhattan. The Jaspers will host Loyola on Friday evening at 6 o'clock in Riverdale, N.Y.
