STANDISH, Maine - The Eagles had a long day between two sets that were pushed beyond 25 points and five sets on the day that were won by a mere two points. Despite the back-and-forth trade of points, the Husson women's volleyball came up short in two matches to Colby-Sawyer College and Saint Joseph's College (Maine) on Saturday afternoon in a tri-match hosted by the Monks.

COLBY-SAWYER 3, HUSSON 0 ( 25-13, 25-21, 26-24)

After a slow start today in the first set, the Eagles found their groove and began the trek to a comeback. Unfortunately, Husson volleyball came up just short in the final set battling the Chargers to match point before falling behind by two.
