Women's Volleyball Bounces Back with Sweep of Canisius
Nov. 1, 2009
BUFFALO, N.Y. - After falling to Niagara Saturday, the Greyhounds rebounded with a sweep of Canisius, downing the Golden Griffins 25-18, 25-17, 27-25 Sunday, in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action at the Koessler Athletic Center.
Katie Dircks led the `Hounds in Buffalo with a match-high 15 kills on .387 hitting. Nina Camaioni and Karlee Woodward each had 15 and 14 kills, with Woodward putting down six blocks and Camaioni chipping in 11 digs. Aubrey Kirven led all setters with 44 assists, turning in her highest three-set total of the season. Kirven also had three kills, going 3-for-3, with six digs and three blocks.
Loyola (17-7 overall, 7-7 MAAC) far out-hit Canisius (11-15 overall, 8-7 MAAC) totaling 51 kills on .296 hitting, holding the Golden Griffins to a mere 30 kills on .118 hitting. The `Hounds coupled a strong hitting performance with stellar defense, tallying 15 total blocks and missing just five serve receptions.
The Griffins trailed Loyola until the third game. Canisius had a 10-4 lead when an Annie Manes kill sparked a rally that lead to Loyola taking 10 of the next 13 points. After a Canisius timeout, Danielle Brawn came back with a kill for the Griffins. But the Greyhounds held off a run with a block from Woodward and Camaioni.
After allowing a kill by Michelle Godfrey to put the score at 19-15, the Greyhounds went on a tear. Camaioni aced a serve and notched a kill, and two straight kills by Dircks and a block by Manes and Taylor Koncelik closed the gap and tied the score at 19-19.
Dircks broke a 25-25 tie a few minutes later, and an attack error by Brawn gave the match to Loyola.
The Greyhounds are back home at Reitz Arena next week to begin a four-match home stand and closing out the 2009 season.
