Game’s 3 and 4 of the weekend for Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) began Saturday morning, September 2nd. The first battle against Georgetown College would be a good one with them being undefeated and SAGU having only one loss on the season. SAGU playing as well as any one right now knew they could compete with one of the top teams in the nation. Georgetown got out to an early lead 6-4 in set 1 but the Lady Lions closed that gap and didn’t let them get a lead of more than 2 points through the rest of the set. 24-23, SAGU up by 1 and ready to take advantage of the match, Sophia Ivy had a perfect set to Kali Shaw for the kill and the win. The teams switched sides and the Lions started right where they left off getting up early 15-9 and didn’t look back winning set 2, 25-20. Up 2 sets to 0, 1st year Head Coach Felicia Pace for Georgetown lit a fire into the Tigers as they scored 13 unanswered points to start set 3, 13-0. A tough task for any team to overcome, Georgetown took down the Lions 25-9. Set 4 started off fairly even with SAGU being up 8-7, but going on a 12-2 run to put them up 20-9. The Lady Lions were too much to handle, Ivy distributed the ball well giving the final two kills to Kennedy Wiley and Madeleine Hartline , finishing the Tigers 25-15. Kali Shaw had 21 kills and 19 digs for the match; Sophia Ivy had 4 kills, 9 digs, and 43 assist; and Celi Bruce had 4 assist and 22 digs. This would give them their third win of the weekend and second over a nationally voted team in two days, Central Christian College was up to the test next. The night before the Tigers from Kansas were swept 3-0 for their first game of the season against fellow SAC member Texas Wesleyan. The Lady Lions did the same, sweeping the Tigers 3 matches to 0; 25-13, 25-13, and 25-20. The Lions had 4 players with over 5 kills and 3 with over 5 digs in the short match Saturday afternoon. SAGU has two key conference games this Friday and Saturday. Friday night will be at Oklahoma Panhandle State then Saturday at Wayland Baptist 9/8.
