Volleyball Defeated by St Scholastica
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.-- North Central Volleyball was defeated 3-0 on the road by The College of St. Scholastica in a UMAC conference match on Friday afternoon. The Saints jumped on NCU early and the Rams were not able to respond in a tough loss in the opening game of their conference schedule.
North Central (0-11, 0-1) dropped a 25-5 first set to the Saints but tried to rebound in set two taking a 4-1 lead early on. NCU kept things within reach for several more rallies but found themselves down 8-6 and that would be as close as things would be the rest of the way in a 25-16 set two loss.
Set three saw St Scholastica jump out to an 11-2 lead but the Rams were able to answer and get to within 11-7. But after the teams traded points to get the score to 12-8 the Saints surged away for a 25-12 final set win.
North Central will back in action on Saturday morning with an 11 a.m. conference match verses Northland College (Ashland, Wis.). NCU will also play Finlandia University (Hancock, Mich.) at 1 p.m. in the middle match of a triangular played at Northland College.
