THE LEAD:
Playing for the third time this season, Dean College made quick work of Massachusetts Maritime Academy by posting a 3-0 win over the visiting Buccaneers on Saturday morning.

HOW IT HAPPENED:
Dean took the first set, 25-23 and had a lot easier time in the middle frame by notching a convincing 25-16 victory.

Ahead 2-0, the Bulldogs were trailing late in the third set, 22-20 until a couple of attack errors from Massachusetts Maritime evened the score and a Kait Anderson (Clinton, Conn.) kill put Dean in front.

The Buccaneers actually served for the set when they were in front, 26-25 but the Bulldogs recorded three straight points capped by a matching sealing kill from Melanie Rios-Nevarez (Alta Vega, Puerto Rico).

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:
Neither team hit the ball well as they combined for 55 kills and 41 errors. Jen Roy led all players with 12 kills, while Rios-Nevarez stuffed the stat sheet with a team-best eight kills, 11 assists and nine digs.

Samantha Trullo (Chelmsford, Mass.) produced five kills and 22 digs, while Anderson had five kills and 15 digs.

UP NEXT:
The Bulldogs are back in action on Tuesday when they host Mitchell College in their home finale. First serve is slated for 7:00 PM.
