VCU wins game two of invitational
By: Jacob Sexton
VCU hosted Seton Hall, while riding their longest winning streak since 2013. However, this win did not come easy for the Rams. Coming off of a sweep against Bowling Green, a repeat performance was expected. Seton Hall would say otherwise.
As VCU ran out to a two set lead, Seton Hall look just about done. But Seton Hall would end up winning the third set 25-23. During the third set, the Head Coach for Seton Hall, Allison Yaeger, would receive a yellow card from the head official. This would motivate the Pirates in the fourth set as they would win 25-19. With both teams having two sets a piece, it would come down to the fifth and final set. Seton Hall, still riding on the momentum of the last two sets jumped out to an 8-4 lead. Then something happened. The Rams would start to respond with kills and blocks and would rally back to win 15-9, which extends the winning streak to nine in a row. This match was an all around team effort for the Rams as they had four players with double digit kills, with Jasmin Sneed and Vicky Giommarini leading the pack with 11 each. Also an impressive game from Dajah Ard who had 31 assists in this matchup.
The Rams are now 12-2 and their next matchup is later today on September 16, as they will face off a tough opponent in Northwestern who is also boasting a nine game winning streak. Seton Hall falls to 6-6 on the season and they will also play again later today against Bowling Green.
