Lauryn Hovey goes for a kill against Ball State

For the first time since August 27, Bowling Green Volleyball came out on top of a match with a straight set sweep.

The best part? It wasn’t even close.

The Falcons (9-11, 3-6 MAC) utilized a season-high .423 hitting percentage, alongside a pair of double figure kills getters, to take down the Miami RedHawks (5-16, 1-8 MAC) in Oxford (25-12, 25-13, 25-16).

In set one, BG came out guns blazing,  ending the set with a .500 hitting percentage, charged by six early kills from junior outside hitter Mia Tyler, as well as five from Lauryn Hovey, who was named MAC East Offensive Player of the Week for this week.

Now you would think that was the peak.

Oh boy would you be wrong.

The orange and brown decided to just one-up themselves and hit an insane .652 percent, a set high for BGSU this season.

Now in the third, things got a bit closer, as Miami responded by topping the Falcons in kills (11-10), assists (11-6), and digs (13-12).

But the biggest downfall for the red and white, outside of their defense being unable to alter Hovey and Tyler, was the self-inflicted wounds, in which the RedHawks were -10 in the attack error category (18-8).

For the Falcons, Hovey led the way once again in kills with 13, the second straight match she’s led the Falcons in that category. Tyler added in 11, while Kat Mandly and Alexis Mettille added seven and six respectively.

Once again without freshman Amanda Otten available due to injury, BG put their faith in senior setter Jaden Walz in the 5-1, which worked to a charm once again, as Walz led the way in assists with 31, while adding six digs and a pair of kills.

For the RedHawks, no one was able to crack double figures in kills, as Chelsea Williams led the way with eight, while Ellie Hanson added a half dozen.

This is now the second straight win for the orange and brown, and now Falcon fans will look to see the team build off this momentum this Friday and Saturday, as the team returns home to the Stroh Center for a series against Kent State.
