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.
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.
