CARROLLTON, Ga. - Freshman outside hitter Anjelina Webb delivered 16 kills on Tuesday evening at The Coliseum, driving the West Georgia Wolves to their second Gulf South Conference victory of the season, 3-0 over Mississippi College.
For Webb, it was her third-highest kills total in a single match this season, as she had 21 against Tiffin and 19 against Trevecca Nazarene early in the season. And it was the Fayetteville native that was the biggest cog in the Wolves' offensive machine on Tuesday night, as she started the evening with seven kills in the opening set. The two teams battled back-and-forth until West Georgia created separation in the score with a 13-7 lead. As a team, the Wolves had just three kills in the frame, en route to a 25-17 victory and a 1-0 lead in the match.
The second set was a neck-and-neck battle for the first 15 points, and then it was Mississippi College that began to pull away. The Choctaws continued to push and held a 24-20 lead. But sophomore Madi Fleming served the Wolves to six-straight points, as West Georgia took the second set 26-24 to take a 2-0 lead in the match.
West Georgia built a 21-9 lead in the third set, then cruised to a 25-12 victory to take their second Gulf South Conference win of the season. Offensively, it was the best set for the team, as the Wolves had 16 kils with just two errors and a .538 hitting percentage in the frame.
Fleming went the distance as the setter in the match, dishing out 32 assists and leading the Wolves to a .305 hitting percentage against Mississippi College. Jaylen Daffin led the back line with 12 digs, but helped keep the Choctaws' service game, as MC had just two aces in the match.
West Georgia returns to road action this weekend, continuing Gulf South Conference play against Lee on Friday evening and Shorter on Saturday afternoon.
