WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL: HEARTBREAK LOSS TO CYPRESS

WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL: HEARTBREAK LOSS TO CYPRESS

The Fullerton Hornets took on the Cypress Chargers on Wednesday evening. FC entered the match 8-3 in conference play with Cypress sitting right behind them at 7-4.

Set 1 opened with the Chargers going up 7-2. Then a switch was flipped and the Hornets came barreling back to take the set 25-22, opening up what would be an extremely back and forth night for both teams.

The second set had a similar feel to it with Fullerton going down 10-3 before once again coming back to make the set more interesting than Cypress would have hoped. Only this time the Hornets dug themselves too deep of a hole for them to complete the comeback, as they would fight to tie it at 21-21 but ultimately drop the set 26-24.

Set 3 was once again a close, hard fought battle between both teams. They tied at 17-17, until the Chargers managed to create a gap and edge out Fullerton 25-20, taking a 2-1 lead.

The only truly lopsided set of the match came in set 4. A fire was lit under the Hornets, and they rode it to a dominant set win. They would go on to win the game 25-11 and tying the match at 2 sets a piece.

The fifth and final set was unfortunately where things unraveled for Fullerton. They went down early, and did not have enough time to mount another comeback losing 15-7.

FC would drop the match in 5 sets, moving them to 8-4 in conference play and into a tie with the Chargers for third place.
