Volleyball Falls on the Road to Virginia Tech
Nov. 12, 2011
The Eagles succumbed to a 9-2 run by the Cavaliers to open the match. Point production did not come easily and although BC was able to find a brief rhythm late, the Maroon and Gold fell in the first frame, 25-14.
Kills by sophomore middle hitters Alex Fitzmorris and Melissa McTighe, as well as freshman Courtney Castle provided some offense for the Eagles in the second. Boston College found itself in a battle at 12-11 as Virginia's attacked percentage cooled off from .400 in the first to .214 in the second, but an 8-3 run gave the Cavs the momentum needed to steal the set, 25-16.
Freshman setter Kellie Barnum and senior middle hitter Mollie Kolosky opened the third game with kills. Boston College looked to Higgins, Castle, Kolosky and McTighe as the two sides fought back-and-forth to 15. Virginia blocked BC on the next three possessions to put itself in control of the set and go on to win, 25-17.
Boston College returns home for matches against Wake Forest and Duke on Nov. 18 and 20. Live stats will be available through GameTracker.
