Box Score

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Junior middle hitter Chloe Ferrari tied a career-high with 21 kills to help propel the 13th-ranked University of San Diego women's volleyball team to a thrilling 3-2 come-from-behind win over the University of San Francisco Thursday evening in a West Coast Conference match at War Memorial Gym.

After USD stormed back from a 2-1 deficit by winning the fourth set, it all came down to the fifth and final set. This was a battle right out of the gates, as both teams took their turn with the lead and neither team had a lead bigger than two. Once the Toreros took a three-point lead at 10-7, the Dons were forced into a timeout. Then with USD leading 11-8, the Dons went on a 3-0 run to again tied things up at 11-all, which forced the Toreros into a timeout. A Carrie Baird kill then ignited a 4-0 USD run to close things out and give the Toreros their 14th consecutive victory.

With the 25-21, 21-25, 11-25, 25-20, 15-11 win, the Toreros improve to 17-2 overall, remain perfect in the WCC with a 9-0 mark, and they run their winning streak to 14 matches. With the loss, the Dons fall to 12-9 overall, and 3-5 WCC.

Ferrari recorded her third 20-plus kill performance of her career, as she recorded 21 kills on 31 swings, while only committing four errors to hit for a .548 clip. Sandra Lozic was the second of four Toreros with double-digit kills, as she had 14, while both Baird and Alaysia Brown had 10 kills apiece. Rachel Alvey recorded another double-double, as she had 48 assists and had 15 digs, while Kandiss Anderson recorded 13 digs and Baird added in 11.

In the first set, San Diego raced out to a 5-1 lead, grabbing the early momentum. USD would maintain the control of the momentum, and eventually build up a lead to as many as eight at 16-8 on a Sandra Lozic kill. The Dons didn't fade away, as they went on a 4-0 run, to pull back to within four at 16-12. USF continued to chip away at the Toreros lead and pulled to within two at 18-16, but USD was just too strong to overcome, as the Toreros held on to take the first set 25-21.

 

 

In the second set, the Dons managed to even up the match with a 25-21 win of their own. The Dons took the early momentum this time as they opened the frame with a 7-3 run. A Ferrari kill then sparked a 4-1 San Diego run that pulled the Toreros to within one at 8-7. San Francisco then answered right back with a 6-0 run to double up the Toreros and take a 14-7 lead. Then with the home team leading 21-14, a Ferrari kill ignited a 7-2 San Diego run which pulled USD to within two at 23-21. But the Dons managed to hold off the Toreros and took the set 25-21.

San Francisco then dominated the fourth set and took complete momentum in the match by capturing the frame 25-11. USF raced out to a 5-2 run to continue their momentum from the previous set. USF then used a 9-2 run midway through the set to take a 21-7 lead, and they never looked back, as they took a 2-1 lead in the match.

Then with the Toreros' back up against the wall, San Diego managed to dig deep and forced a fifth and deciding set. This set was not an easy win for USD however, as USF raced out to an early 4-0 lead. The two teams then traded point-for-point over the next several volleys, and with the score at 10-6 in favor of San Francisco, a Ferrari kill sparked a 4-1 San Diego run to pull the Toreros to within one at 11-10. USF then went on a 5-1 run to regain some breathing room and a five-point lead at 16-11. USD then dug in deep and put together a 6-1 run to pull even with the Dons at 17-all. Then with the score knotted at 18-18, a Ferrari kill sparked a 4-1 Torero run to give San Diego a 22-19 lead. USD then managed to hold on for a 25-20 victory.

USD will return to action on Saturday at 1 p.m., as they remain on the road and take on Saint Mary's College in Moraga, Calif.
