Metro roundup: ISU volleyball drops MVC opener to Southern Illinois 3-0

TERRE HAUTE — The Indiana State volleyball team went spike for spike with visiting Southern Illinois on Friday night in the ISU Arena but could not pull out a victory as the Salukis won 25-22, 29-27, 25-20 in the Missouri Valley Conference opener for both teams.

ISU (5-6 overall, 0-1 MVC) returns to its home court tonight as it takes on Evansville (5-7, 0-1).

Senior outside-hitter Morgan Dall led the Indiana State attack Friday with 16 kills, while junior middle-blocker Kyla Thomas had nine kills and sophomore middle-blocker Cassandra Willis eight. Senior setter Loni Mackinson now has 1,700 career assists and recording 28 assists in the match Friday, while senior libero Molly Murphy contributed 12 digs.

Neither team was able to gain an advantage in the opening game, which was tied 13 times with four lead changes. The Sycamores did have a 21-20 advantage after a Thomas kill off a Mackinson set. After the scored was knotted at 21, Dall recorded her fifth kill of the game to give Indiana State its final lead at 22-21. Southern Illinois scored the final four points to take Game 1 by a 25-22 score.

The script did not change much for the second game, which had 11 ties and two lead changes. The Sycamores rallied from a 6-3 deficit early in the game to move in front 17-13, but Indiana State could not hold the advantage. The Salukis rallied late and tied the game at 23-23.

The Sycamores did keep the advantage for game point four times on kills by Dall, freshman Kynedi Nalls, and sophomore Victoria Swigart along with an SIU error. Each time, the Salukis came back and scored the final three points of the game to take the win 29-27.

The Salukis pulled out to a 13-9 lead in the third game before ISU rallied with four straight points. Southern Illinois responded with four straight of its own and the Sycamores could not close the gap again. The Salukis were able to hold off repeated Indiana State rallies and posted a 25-20 game win to take the match 3-0.



n Toledo 5, Indiana State 2 — At Toledo, Ohio, Indiana State sophomore Kate Johnson found the back of the net twice, but that was not enough as the Sycamores fell to the host school Friday.

The host Rockets got on the board first in the 12th minute. Just before the end of the half, the Rockets extended their lead to 2-0 with just three minutes left before halftime.

After halftime, the Sycamores wasted no time in cutting their deficit when Johnson found the back of the net just four minutes into the second half off an assist from sophomore midfielder Sydney Lovelace.

Toledo responded, however, less than a minute to retake 1-3 lead over the Sycamores. The Rockets then extended their lead to 4-1 in the 60th minute.

In the 72nd minute, Johnson again sent a shot into the goal off an assist from senior midfielder Taylor Hancock to cut the Toledo lead to 4-2.

Toledo once again responded with a quick score and went on to defeat the Sycamores by a final score of 5-2.

The Sycamores (3-5) will return to action Sunday when they continue on their four-match road trip with a stop at Ypsilanti, Mich., for a match against Eastern Michigan. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.

Toledo is now 3-4.
