CARROLLTON, Ga. - UWG volleyball returned to the road on Tuesday night after three-straight home matches last week, taking GSC perennial power West Florida at the UWF Field House in Pensacola, Fla. The Argos powered past the Wolves in the match, winning in straight sets.
West Florida was in command of the match from the outset, as setter Monique St. Cyr opened the match with an ace against the Wolves that started a 8-2 run over the first 10 points. Wes Georgia had just four kills and seven errors in the opening set, as West Florida took a 25-7 victory to move to 1-0 in the match.
The Wolves opened the second set with back-to-back points, but West Florida returned the favor with seven straight points to take their first lead of the second set. West Georgia responded with three points to pull within two at 7-5, and the two teams went back-and-forth for the next eight points, as the Wolves stayed close to the Argos until the 13-10 mark. The Argos then went on a 6-2 run to take a 19-12 lead in the set, then cruised to a 25-14 victory and a 2-0 lead in the match.
In the third set, West Florida jumped out to a 7-1 lead early and never looked back, powering to a 25-15 victory in the set to take a 3-0 win in the match. The Wolves will take on Mississippi College and West Alabama this weekend on the road.
