At some point, streaks are meant to be broken, both for good and bad reasons.

Well today was a good day to break a streak if you were a Bowling Green Falcon.

After losing six straight matches and falling to 1-6 in Mid-American Conference play, BGSU Volleyball came out guns a blazing, taking care of business on the road to top the Ohio Bobcats in four sets (25-18, 25-23, 17-25, 25-13).

The win came in large part due to a trifecta of aspects- a block party, a double-double, and a triple threat of killers.

Let’s start with the block party, in which freshman middle blocker Helen Wilford decided to invite everyone to it inside the Convocation Center, ending the night with eight block assists in just her second career start.

In the world of double-doubles, senior setter Jaden Walz finished the night with the lone double-double on either side, her fifth of the season (41 assists, 10 digs).

Oh, and then there was the offensive attack, which featured the same top three kills-leaders from Friday’s match (Lauryn Hovey, Mia Tyler, Kat Mandly). Hovey paced the offense with 19 kills on 44 total attacks, while Tyler added 12 and Mandly with 11.

For Mandly, she also added in four service aces, a career high for the junior.

On the other side of the net, the Bobcats were without star middle blocker Caitlin O’Farrell, who did not make an appearance in the contest after putting up a game-high 18 kills a night ago.

In her absence, Sylvania native and freshman Kam Hunt led the way with 11 kills, the lone Bobcat in double-figures.

Tria McLean led the way in assists with 22.

All of this was a breath of fresh air for Falcon fans to see, especially for a team that had been struggling to put together a complete performance in all phases the past few weeks.

But what made it even better?

Head coach Danijela Tomic accomplished some history as well, as the win was her 200th as head coach of BGSU, and her 359 win overall as a Division I head coach.

Now for the Falcons, they have a short turnaround, as on Tuesday, the orange and brown face the Miami RedHawks in Oxford. Following that match, they return home to the Stroh Center for a weekend series against Kent State.
