Trio of Falcons register double-digit kills in dominant win over Kent State

Bowling Green Volleyball (4-6 MAC, 9-11 OVR) earned their third straight win earlier Friday night, taking down the Kent State Golden Flashes (1-9 MAC, 5-16 OVR) in straight sets (25-15. 25-11. 25-11).

The performance was one that reminded many in attendance of that of last year’s championship team: crisp sets, dominant offense, low self-inflicted wounds.

Just an absolute clinic out there.

The Falcons hit as a team an impressive an astonishing 47% exactly, one of the best performances of the season, while holding the Golden Flashes to a meager 3.3%.

That offensive explosion was courtesy of another three-headed monster attack by Lauryn Hovey, Mia Tyler, and Kat Mandly. For Hovey, she led the team with 16 kills and four aces, including going on a personal 5-0 run during the third set. Tyler added 11 kills and Mandly added 10.

Senior Jaden Walz continued to play crisp in the setting game, leading the way with 36 assists and eight digs, two shy of a double-double. Alex Laboy and Lindsey LaPinta each led the way in digs with 10 apiece.

All of that, and to top it off, redshirt-freshman Isabelle Laube recorded her first career ace.

So yeah, it was a memorable day for BGSU.

Meanwhile for the Golden Flashes, Mackenzie McGuire and Logan Henderson were the team leaders in kills with six each. Kendall White came up two digs shy of a double-double, ending the night as the leader in assists with 11 and tied teammate Bryn Roberts with eight digs.

Falcon fans are starting now to see a trend of consistently elite play out of the orange and brown, and that was due to going out and having the confidence to take care of business.

“We executed as a team and we had a good game plan,” said head coach Danijela Tomic. “We thought the game plan was solid but it was always about execution and and our team did that. I thought Jaden (Walz) ran a really good offense but then our hitters also did their job. But offense cannot be done without serve-receive, so it was just a total team.”

The Falcons and Golden Flashes square off again on Saturday at 6 p.m. from the Stroh Center, as the orange and brown go for their fourth straight win and get to 5-6 in Mid-American Conference play.
