YORK - York College came ready to battle Tuesday night against conference foe Oklahoma Wesleyan. The Panthers had their hands full against a team that York hadn't beaten since September 23, 2011. Unfortunately the Eagles had just enough in them to prevent the upset and win in five sets 20-25, 26-24, 21-25, 25-21, 15-13.
In the first set the Panthers found themselves in a hole quickly as they were down most of the match and found themselves down 17-20 before York finished off the set with a 8-0 run. The second set seemed to be in favor of York but the Eagles were the ones to rally back and and win 26-24 after seeing set point at 23-24.
The Panthers controlled set three leading by as many as seven late and closing out with a 25-21 win. The fourth set saw a battle back-and-forth until the game was knotted at 15-15. Oklahoma Wesleyan scored the next three points before York took a timeout. The Panthers took the next two points but that wasn't enough as the Eagles closed out the 25-21 victory.
The fifth set saw the Panther fans standing most of the time as it was a tight battle back-and-forth with neither team having more than a two point lead. However, the Eagles would survive 15-13 in the five-set thriller.
Molly Little (SO/Billings, Mont) had a career high 21 kills in the match to lead the Panthers. Taylor O'Brien (FR/Aurora, Colo) and Cassidy Wilson (JR/Moore, Okla) also hit double digit kills with 12 and 10, respectively.
Jolene Herzog (SR/Pullman, Wash) had a season high 34 assists, while Makenzi Kissman (FR/Aurora, Colo) finished with 21. Kelsey Taylor (JR/Moore, Okla) was all over the court as one of four players with double digit digs. Taylor finished with a career high 32. Kissman added 18 digs, just missing a triple double with nine kills. Natalie Carrasco (SR/Moreno Valley, Calif) had 15 digs and Herzog finished with 12.
Jolene Herzog also eclipsed the 1000 career assists mark in the match.
The Panthers fall to 1-10 on the season and 0-2 in conference. They will travel to Ottawa, Kansas on Saturday afternoon for another KCAC tilt.
