The Cornerstone volleyball team returned home Tuesday evening for their second match of the WHAC season but were unable to pick up the win falling to the Panthers of Davenport 3-1. The home loss to Davenport was the first in CU history. It was definitely a nice homecoming welcome for CU alum and DU head coach Megan Gardner.
In game one, both teams started the match sharing the lead several times in route to an 11-11 tie midway through the opening contest. From there, the Panthers went on a 14-6 run to take the game by a score of 25-17.
The Golden Eagles scored first in game two and jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the opening volleys. The Panthers fought back to tie the game 5-5 but the CU women moved to another gear from there and outscored DU 20-10 to take the 25-15 victory.
The Cornerstone women were in comeback mode for the last two games of the match as they only led for a handful of points in each of them in the early going. The Panthers wrapped up the contest with a 25-19 victory in game three and a 25-20 win in game four to seal the match.
The Golden Eagles were led on the night by Alicia TerHaar who collected 11 kills and 12 digs. Becky Albrecht (9 kills; 10 digs) and Abby Miedema (8 kills; 11 digs) followed closely behind in the attack while Erin Greenwood passed out 35 assists and picked up 14 digs. TerHaar and Albrecht also each played a part in three blocks on the night. In each of the four games, the team with an attack percentage above .200 took the victory (DU .200; CU .235; DU .211; DU .214).
With the loss, CU falls to 7-11 on the year and 1-1 in conference action. The Golden Eagles will return to the court on Thursday when they travel to Livonia, Michigan to take on the Crusaders of Madonna University at 7:00 PM. The Crusaders are currently 9-6 on the year and 2-1 in conference play.
