Canisius Rallies For Three-Set Win Over Volleyball
Nov. 12, 2011
BALTIMORE - Canisius College came back from deficits in all three sets to deal the Loyola University Maryland volleyball team a 26-24, 25-19, 25-20 setback in its penultimate match of the season on Saturday night in Reitz Arena.
The Golden Griffins trailed 23-17 in the first set after a service ace by Loyola's Jac Bullock, but they tallied a sideout on a service error on the ensuing point and then scored two more, one on a Danielle Brawn kill and the latter on a Loyola hitting error, before the Greyhounds called at timeout at 23-20.
Canisius came out of the timeout and scored again on one of Brawn's team-high 14 kills, but Loyola reached set point, 24-21, on a Tina Catanach kill.
Brawn got the serve right back for the Golden Griffins with a kill, and she then served an ace and Canisius scored the set's final two points on Loyola attack errors to earn a 1-0 lead in the match.
Loyola led in the early going of the second set, but Canisius eased its way out to an 18-13 advantage on a Brawn kill and went on to win the set and take a 2-0 advantage into the break.
The Greyhounds went ahead, 13-10, on a Lauren Arnold service ace in the third set, but Canisius reeled off three-straight points to tie the final set at 13-13.
Emily Elek continued to serve for Canisius after a Loyola timeout, as the Greyhounds had consecutive attack errors before Tina Catanach notched a sideout kill with Canisius in front 15-14.
Loyola tied the set at 15-15 with Faye Lukas' kill, and Catanach put the Greyhounds up with an ace before Brawn evened the score again for the Golden Griffins.
Lukas logged another kill to give Loyola a 17-16 lead, but Olivia Chrzanowski tallied a back-row kill for Canisius, and then back-to-back Loyola errors put Canisius in front for good.
Bullock led all hitters with 15 kills. She hit .500 with just three errors on 24 swings. Janet Pressler had 21 digs for the Greyhounds, and Catanach added 11.
The Greyhounds close their 2011 schedule Sunday afternoon when they host MAAC leader Niagara University at 12 noon in Reitz Arena.
