(Adrian, Mich.) The Golden Eagles were getting desperate for a win and were looking to break their six game losing streak with a win over Siena Heights. The Saints put up a valiant fight but the Golden Eagles prevailed winning their second WHAC match of the season 3 games to 2.

CU took an early 6-11 lead in the first game but the Saints battled back to take the lead at 19-18 after a CU ball-handling error. Abby Miedema tied the score with a kill and capitalized on a Siena attack error to take a 20-19 lead. Strong serving by Marissa Bliss and back to back kills by Jodi Grandholm and Abby Miedema closed the game 25-20. 

CU opened the second game scoring the first two points but the Saints took a four point lead after a CU attack error at 10-6. Siena took a timeout when CU went ahead by two points 19-17 after a Tamara Bethke service ace. With the score at 22-20 CU closed the game with 3 straight points beginning with a kill by Alicia TerHaar, a Siena ball-handling error and a kill by Jodi Grandholm to take a 2-0 lead heading into the break. 

The Golden Eagles came out of the break slow and Siena capitalized. The Saints went on a 7-0 run to take a 16-6 lead. CU cut it to 4 points at 23-19 but Siena closed out the game with a 25-20 win.

The fourth game stayed close throughout until Siena went on a 4-0 run behind the hitting of Nikki Hughes and a lead of 14-10. CU could not get closer than three points and lost the fourth game 25-19 and the Saints forced a 5th and deciding game. 

Three straight ball-handling errors early in the game by Siena gave the Golden Eagles a 5-1 lead. CU would never relinquish the lead but the Saints tied it at 16-16 after a CU attack error. Alicia TerHaar recorded one of her 13 kills and Jodi Grandholm finished the game with an ace to help CU secure the 18-16 win. 

Along with TerHaar Kate Zwier finished with a team high 13 kills. Tamara Bethke had 35 assists and Abby Miedema had a team high 10 digs. CU hit .309 for the match and Siena hit .147. 

Cornerstone improves to 8-12 on the season and 2-2 in the WHAC. The Golden Eagles will play Northwestern Ohio on Saturday, September 25 at 12:30 p.m.
