SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – TMC’s Morgan Koch (Auburn, CA) posted 15 kills while Aubrey Pyburn (Sun Valley, CA) added 12 more in Tuesday’s 3-0 loss to GSAC rival Westmont College.
The Lady Mustang’s third straight loss brings their 2015 record to 11-8 and 4-3 in conference play.
Westmont started the first set with a 5-1 lead over the Lady Mustangs and never looked back. Despite TMC tying the score on five separate occasions late into the set (17-17, 18-18, 19-19, 20-20, 21-21), the Warriors won the first frame with a score of 25-21 after posting four unanswered points.
Set two featured a resilient Lady Mustang offense as TMC overcame a 20-13 deficit by posting a 7-3 run late into the game. With the score in favor of Westmont at 23-20, the Warriors managed to edge TMC with a Jessica McCann kill and a TMC attack error.
Set three was closer than its predecessors as Westmont was only able to muster a five-point lead late into the frame (22-17). The Lady Mustangs again battled to a 23-20 mark, but the Warriors closed up shop after a TMC attack error and service error brought the score to 25-21.
Now, the Lady Mustangs will have to wait a week to get back in the win column when they take on Hope International (6-6, 3-1) in Fullerton on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.
