“After dropping the first two sets, we settled in and started passing the ball,” says head coach Hank Moore , “I’m proud of our girls for not quitting after playing very poor in that first set.  I feel like we grew up some last night.”

At the start of the first set, the Lady Lions stayed close to MACU.  The score was tied at eight before the Lady Evangels went on a 9-2 run.  SAGU couldn’t recover and dropped the first set.

The second set was close, and by the end, the teams were matched point for point.  MACU’s Laurel Church was able to come up with the final kill to put the Lady Evangels over the top, 25-23.

From that point on, SAGU was able to turn the tide and regain the lead.  The third set was tied at eight-all when SAGU went on a 17-6 run.  Out of those 17 points, 13 of them were kills.

SAGU’s Sophia Ivy finished the night with 59 assists and 12 digs.  The win over MACU was her first double/double of the year. Kali Shaw had 24 kills and a .364 hitting percentage.  Shaw also had 11 digs.
