Match One: Berea 3 – 0 Agnes Scott
The Scotties played their game in the first set, taking a late lead over a Mountaineer offense looking to find any rhythm whatsoever. However, Berea turned a two-point deficit into a 12-3 run to end the game for the early 1-0 match lead.
The second set lacked just as much flow as Berea did just enough to clinch a 25-20 result before they ran away with things in the third to win the match outright.
Berea hit .160 as a team with Allana Knowles leading the way with 12 of the team's 33 kills. Adrienne Roberts had 23 assists for the Mountaineers, while Bailie Parker paced the defensive effort with 12 digs.
Match Two: Maryville 3 – 0 Agnes Scott
The Scotties gave the Scots everything they could handle in the first set, jumping out a 17-7 advantage after Galoia ripped a serve for an ace.
However, Maryville flexed its depth and talent up front with a furious rally to take a lead at 22-21 and held the Scotties to only one point the rest of the way. The Scots' service game carried them in a big way for much of the afternoon, but at no bigger moment than to turn the early tone around.
The Scots led comfortably the rest of the match, besting Agnes Scott 25-11 and 25-7 over the final two sets.
Rhianna Tyldesley led all players with nine kills and a .217 mark.
White had a nice rebound game for the Scotties with six kills and three service aces.
The Scotties head to Oglethorpe on Wednesday for their final non-conference match of the season.
