The 22nd ranked University of Mary Washington volleyball team dropped a three game decision at Ithaca College on Friday night. The Eagles slip to 4-6 on the season; game scores were 25-19, 25-23, 25-14.
In the first, UMW fell behind early, 6-1, bur scored three straight to trim the deficit to 6-4. A pair of Bomber miscues trimmed the margin to 10-8, but the Eagles would draw no closer in a 25-19 loss.
In the second, UMW started with an early 3-1 lead, but seven straight Ithaca points gave the hosts a 6-3 lead. Ithaca led, 21-14, before the Eagles scored four straight to cut the margin to three. UMW scored three more points after an Ithaca point, and trailed, 22-21. But the Bombers closed out the set by scoring three of the last five points.
The Eagles will compete again at Ithaca tomorrow with a pair of matches.
