Nov. 23, 2007
Washington, D.C. - Despite a trio of double-double performances from sophomores Kortney Robinson (Pleasant Grove, Utah/Pleasant Grove) and Jessica Hardy (Manhattan Beach, Calif./Mira Costa) and junior captain Caitlin Boland (Naperville, Ill./Benet Academy), the Georgetown University volleyball team suffered a 3-1 loss to Liberty this afternoon on the first day of the VCU Thanksgiving Classic in Richmond, Va. The Hoyas slip to 5-26 while the Flames improve to 27-8. Game scores were 28-30, 13-30, 31-29, 17-30.
Robinson led the way for the Hoyas with a 14-kill, 12-dig performance while Hardy followed up with 12 kills and 16 digs. Boland did a nice job setting up the offense with 41 assists while also pitching in 10 digs to the Georgetown defense. Junior Katherine Niesen added consistent play with a .222 performance on seven kills while adding six digs. Sophomore Kiersten McKoy (Oakland, Calif./Bishop O'Dowd) came away with four total blocks on the day - one solo, three assisted efforts.
In game one, the Flames hit .271 while Georgetown kept on pace with a .244 percentage, however, Liberty tallied 20 kills while the Hoyas were only able to pick up 12. The game became close as Georgetown was able to limit its errors to a mere two, while Liberty committed eight in game one alone. The Flames held on to a six-point lead before Georgetown called its second timeout of the game (27-21). The break proved beneficial for the Hoyas as they picked up five of the next six points to pull within one, prompting a Liberty timeout. Liberty came back form the break and score the next point to have double-game point. A Niesen kill saved one but the Flames put game one away on a GU service error.
In game two, the Hoyas dropped to a mere .025 hitting percentage which gave the Flames more than enough to take a quick game two and a 2-0 lead.
Game three saw a renewed energy from the Blue and Gray as they took a six-point lead behind the serve of McKoy. GU took advantage of nine errant plays in game three but heightened play in the middle of the game tied the game and even gave the Flames a 19-18 lead. Georgetown forged ahead and a key blocking effort from Hardy and Niesen prompted a Liberty timeout. Back-to-back kills from Liberty's Jessica Nelson made the game close again and the two teams traded points until the game was tied at 29 points apiece. Back to back kills from Robinson won game three and put the Hoyas within one game of Liberty (2-1).
Liberty took a commanding lead in game four (21-9) that they would not relinquish. An impressive .341 hitting percentage against Georgetown's .083 sealed game three and the match for Liberty.
Georgetown returns to action, tomorrow, November 24 when they take on host, Virginia Commonwealth at noon. This is the second time the two teams will meet this season with the Ram taking a 3-2 decision earlier this year at McDonough Arena.
