Volleyball - Sat, Sep. 24, 2011
Georgetown College's volleyball had hopes of a win to go
with a Homecoming celebration. But, Asbury University came in and clipped those
dreams. The Tigers (8-9) fell in five games to the visiting Eagles (15-4),
8-25, 25-16, 25-18, 12-25, 18-16 Saturday at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
"We are 1-5 this season in five game matches," said GC
coach Nick Griffin. "We have to find a way to win those and get over that hump."
GC opened early, barely allowing Asbury a point on serve
and just eight points overall. The Eagles did not stay doormat long, though,
taking control the next two games. The Tigers returned to first-game form with
a big win in game four to level the match.
"This is something we have to figure out, but it is
always why there are so many matches," Griffin said. "Volleyball is a long
season and we see flashes of what we could be. Opposing coaches see flashes of
what we could be; now we just have to find a way to make it consistent."
The final game was a back and forth battle that late
found Asbury with two match points. Georgetown denied both and eventually a
third before giving themselves a match point at 16-15. The Eagles sided out and
used the moment for the final two points and the win.
GC returns to action 7 pm at University of the Pikeville
