The Pioneers wasted little time in dismantling Molloy College on Thursday, Oct. 22, as they handled them easily and won the match in straight sets, 3-0.
In a tightly contested first set, the Pioneers went on a 6-2 run late to grab a commanding lead and an eventual set win. The second set, much like the first one, was a back-and-forth affair, and similar to first set, the Pioneers put themselves in position to succeed. Tied at 21, a pair of unforced errors by Molloy coupled with kills from sophomore outside hitter Danielle Valenza and freshman outside hitter Rachel Londot, led to another set victory for the Pioneers.
The third set was all Green and Gold, as they cruised to their 18th victory of the season. Valenza, Londot, and freshman middle hitter Elise Strange all had nine kills apiece to lead the squad. The Pioneers serve up their next match on Saturday, Nov. 7, as they travel to Connecticut to square off against the University of Bridgeport. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
