Rockets' Three-Match Win Streak Ends with 3-0 Loss to Oregon State
PORTLAND, OR – Toledo (5-4) saw its modest three-match win streak snapped on Friday evening with a 3-0 (25-14, 25-19, 25-16) setback to Pacific-12 Conference foe Oregon State (5-2).
The Beavers stifled the Rockets’ offense, limiting UT to a .046 attack percentage thanks to a 53-35 advantage in digs and an 8-3 cushion in blocks.
Senior OH Jordan Kielty topped Toledo offensively with nine kills and a .174 hitting mark. She was the only Rocket attacker to have more kills than attack errors.
Junior MB Arica Nassar was the lone player in the match to reach double figures in kills, finishing with 11 kills and a .421 ATK%.
The Rockets’ best opportunity to win a set came in the second one when kills from senior RSH Becca Reidy, Frazer and an OSU attack error tied the score at 19-19. Reidy was blocked on the next point though and the Beavers reeled off the next five points to take a 2-0 lead.
UT was within a point near the midpoint of Set 3 at 11-10 but OSU scored five straight to take an insurmountable 16-10 advantage.
