Volleyball Comes Back Twice; Falls in Five Sets to Goldey-Beacom

Volleyball Comes Back Twice; Falls in Five Sets to Goldey-Beacom

PHILADELPHIA – The University of the Sciences volleyball team came back from losing sets one and three, before coming up short in the fifth set to Goldey-Beacom in Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) action inside of Bobby Morgan Arena on Tuesday night. 

With a match-high 45 assists, which tied her career-best, freshman Caelin Jaskot moved into 10th in program history with 639 for her career. 

Sarah Miller paced USciences with 16 kills, one shy of the career-high she set last match, and added a career-best 17 digs for her second career double-double. She also led the Devils with three service aces. 

Bianca Galis and Brooke Witmer were both also in double-figures for kills, with Witmer adding a match-high four blocks as she fell one kill shy of a career-best. 

Rhiannon Comia led all players with 23 digs, and Danielle Taylor was also in double-figures with 14. 

After Goldey-Beacom pulled away to take the first set 25-21, University of the Sciences had to battle back from being down 18-22 in the second to avoid a two-set deficit after the Lightning reeled off five straight points. 

USciences did so with five straight points of its own, but GBC came right back with consecutive points for a set point. The Devils killed that off with a Witmer kill and after the two teams traded points, back-to-back kills by Witmer and Miller evened the match.  

After Goldey-Beacom controlled set three, 25-18, University of the Sciences once again had to come back and it did with its most efficient set, swinging .271. Trailing 2-5, the Devils rattled off seven consecutive points on Cassandra Moy's serve, which included four kills from Miller, and they would lead throughout the remainder of the set en route to a 25-19 triumph. 

USciences could not carry that momentum into set five though, despite erasing an 0-2 deficit with three straight to take its one and only lead. Goldey-Beacom responded with a 7-1 run to eventually take the set and match, 15-8. 

University of the Sciences wraps up a six-match homestand on Tuesday, Oct. 25 when it wraps up its non-conference schedule against Lincoln at 7 p.m.
