Goss Leads GW Volleyball Past La Salle, 3-0
Colonials Swing Season-High .352 For Second Straight A-10 Victory
Oct. 11, 2013
WASHINGTON - Senior Rachael Goss led all players with 16 kills and 13 digs as the George Washington volleyball team opened its weekend home stand with a 3-0 sweep of La Salle on Friday night at the Charles E. Smith Center. Set scores were 25-13, 25-12, 25-14.
GW (7-10, 2-1 A-10) slammed 40 kills against just eight attack errors, a season-low mark, en route to its third straight-sets win of the season.
The Colonials led wire-to-wire in the opening frame, hitting a blistering .462 with just two attack errors, while converting on 85-percent (12-of-14) of sideout point opportunities. Goss collected eight of her 16 winners in the first set without committing an error as the Colonials prevailed, 25-13.
In the second set, the teams traded points before La Salle (1-22, 0-5 A-10) grabbed a 4-3 lead. A kill by junior Landon Garvik tied the score and the Colonials gained a one-point advantage following an Explorers' blocking error.
GW then opened a 10-6 advantage which forced a La Salle timeout. Out of the break, the Colonials used a 15-6 run the rest of the way to take a 2-0 lead in the match with a 25-12 victory.
The momentum carried over into the third set as GW hit .343 (15k-3e-35a) on the way to the match-clinching 25-14 victory.
GW converted 80-percent (12-of-15) of its sideout opportunities in the match while posting six team blocks and limiting La Salle to an attack percentage of .061 (25k-19e-98a).
Sophomore Chidima Osuchukwu continued her efficient season, posting six kills against just one error (.417) along with a match-high three blocks (one solo, two assist).
Sophomore Jordan Timmer also notched double-digit assits with 11 along with three digs.
GW hosts VCU on Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. at Smith Center.
