Gators show improvement in loss to Eagles

Box Score

CHESTNUT HILL, MA – After dropping Game 1 25-7, the Gators threatened in the final two sets, falling 25-18 and 25-20 Thursday night to visiting Daniel Webster.
            Behind serves from captain Kristina Rieger (Concord, NH/Concord) and four early Pine Manor (1-15) errors, the Eagles (9-4) soared to an 11-0 lead to open what looked like it would be a long night for the Gators. Daniel Webster then went up 17-1 in what ended as a 25-7 rout.
            The Eagles opened up another early lead in Game 2, but Juan Barbosa’s club showed its resiliency. Four straight points on serves from freshman Alie Johnston cut the Eagles lead to 13-11, but five straight points with 6-foot sophomore Emily Travis (Somerset, MA/Somerset) serving extended the Daniel Webster lead to 17-11. The Gators battled, but could not cut the margin to fewer than five the remainder of the way, falling 25-18.
            Pine Manor controlled Game 3 throughout the early going, opening up a 7-5 lead on a Johnston block during a 6-0 run that pulled the Gators ahead 8-5. The Eagles again caught fire with Travis at serve, going on a 6-0 run of their own to break a 12-12 tie and open up a sizable lead. A block and a kill from sophomore Jen Gross helped cut the Eagles lead to 23-17, but Gross’ Gators couldn’t cut the lead to fewer than four. Finally, Daniel Webster’s Jennifer Finneran (Barnstead, NH/Prospect Mountain) ended Pine Manor’s hope with a block to seal the 25-20 win. 
            Gross led the Gators with 10 kills, also adding seven digs. Johnston totaled 11 assists, while Veronica Vozzolo (Bellmore, NY/JFK) tallied a team-high 10 digs.
            The Gators return to action on Saturday at St. Joseph (CT) College at 1 p.m.
