Calvary University played a strong game Tuesday evening, but came out with a 3-0 loss against Manhattan Christian College. “We came out strong in the first set ready to play, but Manhattan is a great offensive and defensive team,” said Coach Ashley Spicer. “They set a fast pace on offense to start the game that we are not used to.” The Warriors were unable to find an answer to the Thunders fast pace and dropped the first set 12-25.
Improvements to defense allowed the Lady Warriors to take an early lead over the Thunder to start the second half. “We did a really good job of swinging harder and faster to find the holes in their defense as well as covering covering our blockers better,” said Coach Spicer. Manhattan responded defensively to Calvary and regained the lead midway through the second set. The Warriors refused to go away and exchanged leads several times throughout the set, but came up short 20-25.
Manhattan once again set a fast pace to start the third set. Unforced errors on the Warriors side kept them from finding an answer to the Thunders rhythm, dropping the third match 15-25. “I am proud of how the girls played and responded to an excellent team,” said Coach Spicer. “We are looking forward to getting to play them on our home court.”
The Lady Warriors will next travel to Ankeny, Iowa to take on Faith Baptist Bible College.
