‘Phins volleyball falls to Bentley in close games

This past Saturday the women’s volleyball team played a tough match against Bentley University ultimately losing 3-1 to the Falcons.

The first game of the match went to Bentley, who opened with a strong lead, managing to get past the Dolphins by a mere 5 points (25-20). This loss didn’t prevent the Dolphins from rallying back, as they took the next game 25-21. Working with each other as a team unit, they were able to edge past Bentley and make it even at 1-1.

In the third game, Bentley retaliated against the second game loss by leading with a score of 24-20. Le Moyne fought back, forcing Bentley to struggle to hold their lead, bringing it to 23-24 the Dolphins needed to even the score, but were unfortunately shut down by a kill spike from the Bentley side. In the fourth game, Le Moyne came back, having a lead of 20-14, but were unable to hold the lead as Bentley rallied back to win the game 25-23.

The ‘Phins played intensely throughout the match, but were unable to close out tight points. Junior Allison Hebel led the team with 11 kills and 7 digs, helping to secure major points. Fellow junior Danielle Fetsch was able to tie her career high of 10 kills, while also having 5 digs and 3 blocks up at the net.

Weekly standouts Bethany Fabian and Morgan McDermott, both juniors, have consistently led the Dolphins in defense this season, continuing their run with 10 digs and 5 blocks each.

This marks the fifth loss in league play for the Dolphins, who lost again in a tight match to Stonehill on Sunday. With seven league matches left this season, Le Moyne still has  ample chances to come back and better their record for the year.

Le Moyne will be traveling to New Hampshire this upcoming weekend to face Southern New Hampshire and Franklin Pierce.
