Box Score

SPOKANE, Wash. - The 11th-ranked University of San Diego women's volleyball team ran its winning streak to five, with a clean sweep over Gonzaga University Thursday evening in a West Coast Conference match.

With the 27-25, 25-18, 25-23 win, the Toreros improve to 14-3 overall, move to 6-2 in the WCC and have their second longest winning streak of the season at five. With the loss, the Zags fall to 8-9 overall, move to 4-4 in the WCC and saw their three match winning streak come to an end.

Chloe Ferrari led all players with 14 kills on 21 swings, while only committing one attack error to hit for a .619 clip. Sandra Lozic was the only other Torero in double digit kills, as she had 11. Jianna Bonomi recorded 27 assists, while C'era Oliveira led the team with 17 digs. As a team, USD hit .324.

In the first set, a Ferrari kill sparked an 11-6 Torero run to open the frame up, and forced the Zags into a timeout. USD would then go on to take a seven-point lead at 16-9, but Gonzaga then went on a 7-1 run of their own to pull to within one at 17-16, forcing the Toreros into a timeout. Out of the break, it was a back and forth affair and USD would go on to take set-point at 24-23 on a Ferrari kill, but GU would not go away easily, as they then took the next point. USD would take set-point 2 more times before finally putting things away on a GU attack error to give USD a 27-25 win.

In the second set, it was much like the end of the first frame, close. Each team would trade point-for-point over a majority of the set. Then with the score knotted at 13-all, a Rachel Alvey kill sparked a 6-3 USD run to give the Torero some breathing room, and forced the Zags into a timeout. After USD took the next two pints to grab a 21-13 lead, Gonzaga was forced to use its final timeout. But nothing could stop the Toreros from this point on, as they cruised their way to a 25-18 win.

 

 

In the third and final set, USD raced out to a 6-0 lead to grab the early momentum. The Zags however would claw their way back into the frame and eventually tied things up at 11-all. USD and GU then battled back and forth trading point-for-point over the remainder of the frame. Then with everything tied at 23-all, a Ferrari kill and Gonzaga attack error completed the sweep, as USD won 25-23.

San Diego will return to action on Saturday, as they head over to Portland to take on sthe University of Portland at 1 p.m.
