SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – The Master’s College volleyball team fell to the third-ranked Concordia University Eagles in three sets (18-25, 20-25, 23-25) Saturday night at Bross Court.
The loss moved TMC’s record to 13-9 and 4-5 in GSAC play.
The Lady Mustangs trailed the Eagles for almost the entirety of the match until TMC jumped to a 7-4 lead in set three.
After the Lady Mustangs tied the game on seven separate occasions, Concordia unlocked an 18-18 gridlock off a TMC service error. After CUI reeled off five points, the Lady Mustangs halted the Eagles’ soaring offense by tying the match at 23-23.
