The Eagles pulled within eight before running out of chances and losing the set 25-16.
“It is about consistency,” Coach Fox said. “We can’t come out slow like that. Even though we fought back, we cannot start out like that. We have to start out like we did in the second set.”
In the second set it was the Eagles who got hot early, jumping out to a 10-5 lead. They expanded their lead to 22-9 and middle hitter McKenzie St. Claire sealed the set with a hard kill at 25-11.
