PITTSBURGH - Junior Landon Garvik posted 10 kills, but the George Washington volleyball team was unable to extend its winning streak, falling at Duquesne, 3-0, on Friday night at the A.J. Palumbo Center. Set scores were 10-25, 23-25, 16-25.
GW (10-11, 5-2 A-10) struggled offensively throughout the match and finished with a season-low attack percentage (-.010) as Duquesne (13-8, 7-1 A-10) posted 13.0 team blocks and committed just eight attack errors on the evening.
In the first set, the teams traded points until a deadlock at 7-7, but the Colonials went on to commit 14 attack errors which allowed Duquesne to coast to a 25-10 victory.
The second set was much closer as the teams battled through three ties and three lead changes, but a late GW rally fell short. The Colonials trailed 22-16 before embarking on a 7-2 run to pull within one point of the lead at 24-23, but the Dukes ended the threat with a kill to take a 2-0 lead in the match with a 25-23 victory.
GW was unable to thwart the momentum in the third set as Duquesne recorded nine kills with zero errors and limited the Colonials to .000 on the attack to clinch the 3-0 sweep.
Duquesne was led by Allison Foschia, who put down eight winners against just one error. Lacy Levers led all players with seven blocks (two solo, five assist).
The Colonials aim to for the season sweep over George Mason on Sunday at 1 p.m. when the two teams meet in the latest installment of the Revolutionary Rivalry.
