YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Three Jaguars ended in double-digit kills, but IUPUI dropped their second straight game against Youngstown State, falling 3-1 (21-25, 20-25, 25-21, 24-26) on Tuesday (Jan. 26).
The jags were conducted in the second year Allie Pogue, which ended with 17 kills while hitting .406. Madeline Haines had her second game in a row with double digit kills, 15 and Emily Allan scored 11 kills and hit .500 in the match. Darragh Dixon 42 templates distributed to speed up the offense.
IUPUI (0-2) overtook Youngstown State (2-0) .218 to .180 and ended with nine more kills, but the service game injured IUPUI for the second straight competition. The Jags finished the game with 15 service errors to just eight for Youngstown State, allowing 10 service aces for the penguins.
In the first set, IUPUI fell back 17:12, but used a 4-0 run with kills from Pogue and Alan and a block from the duo to pull within one. After the Jags fell again at three, they got another kill from Alan and an ace from Pogue to return to 20-19, but that was closest when the Jags closed Youngstown State’s set at 25-21.
The two teams exchanged points in the second set until Youngstown State started a 4-0 run with four aces in a row and took a 16-12 lead. A block from Haines and Alan and a mistake from Youngstown State helped IUPUI get back on the set between 18 and 17, but two kills by the penguins and one mistake from Alan gave Youngstown State the momentum and IUPUI never got the rest of IUPUI closer than four the way.
IUPUI needed a win in the third set to stay alive in the game and turned to Pogue. The second child finished the third set with nine kills and hit a blistering .727 in the set. IUPUI’s first big run of the set came with Pogue on the service line after a kill by Pogue tied the set at 11am. Two consecutive Haines kills were followed by two consecutive blocks by Haines and Alan before two mistakes were made – 17-11 in favor of IUPUI. Youngstown State retreated to one at 19:18, but Pogue finished the set with four kills to give the Jags a 25:21 win.
In the fourth set, nobody was in control until a 4-0 run by the Penguins with four errors by IUPUI achieved the 17-13 result in favor of the home team. IUPUI returned 3-0 with kills from Pogue and Haines within one and prevailed after two kills from Alan with 20 against 20. With a tie of 22, IUPUI had blocked their next attack and added a mistake on the next point that earned Youngstown State match point. Corrissa Remter fought for the set point with one kill, and Haines linked the set at 24 with another kill. After the penguins killed, Remter’s next attack took a long time to end the match.
IUPUI will be back in action next Monday (February 1st) and Tuesday (February 2nd) with games in Green Bay.
