@A-StateVB Falls to SFA in Three Sets

August 25, 2018

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (8/25/18) – The Arkansas State volleyball team dropped a 3-0 (20-25, 19-25, 23-25) decision to Stephen F. Austin Saturday morning in both teams’ second match of the Memphis Invitational at Elma Roane Fieldhouse.

A-State (1-1) registered 21 attack errors, nine service errors, and six block errors in the match and only hit .109 to a .202 mark for Stephen F. Austin (2-0).  Carlisa May led the team with 13 kills, while Tatum Ticknor posted 21 digs. Madison Turner and Timber Terrell recorded three blocks each. SFA had a balanced attack with six players posting five or more kills, but no more than eight.

The Red Wolves fell behind 11-5 in set one, but were able to get within two at 21-19 on a kill by May. However, the Ladyjacks ended the set on a 4-1 run to take a 25-20 win. Stephen F. Austin raced out to a commanding 17-7 advantage in set two with A-State able to battle back to within 22-17. Despite the comeback attempt, SFA was able to close out the set 25-19.

The third, and what proved to the final set, was a back-and-forth affair with the score tied 10-10 through the first 20 points. The Red Wolves were able to move in front 22-19 on a kill by May and were poised to get on the board. Stephen F. Austin had other plans and ended the set on a 6-1 run, capped by two straight blocks, to take a 25-23 set three win and match sweep.

Arkansas State returns to action later tonight in the Memphis Invitational with a match against the host Tigers. First serve is set for 7 p.m.
