|Arizona Western College||3|
|Eastern Arizona College||0|
THATCHER, Ariz---Six different players registered at least four kills as the Arizona Western Lady Matadors (7-8 overall, 5-2 ACCAC) picked up their third sweep in less than a week taking a road contest in straight sets from the Eastern Arizona Gila Monsters (0-11 overall, 0-6 ACCAC) at Gitteau Gymnasium Wednesday night.
The Matadors came out scorching with 15 kills in the first set while hitting over .500% to pull away to a 25-19 set one victory. They tallied 15 kills in set two while hitting above .300% and finished off set three 25-15.
Anny Montaño continued her hot streak with 12 kills and a pair of aces as the Matadors pulled away over the course of the three sets.
Connie Silva and Pamela Durazo balanced her from the middle with six kills a piece while the Matador offense supported them with Naomy Vergez, Patrycja Rykala and Daniela Jimenez Paz each adding four.
Jerica Vele and Montaño each had a pair of aces but the service as whole continues to keep the pressure on the Matador opponents.
Arizona Western will finish up a busy week by returning home for a non-conference tilt against the Pima Aztecs in Yuma. The game will be live-streamed on the Matador Athletics Facebook Page.
