THATCHER, Ariz---The Arizona Western Lady Matadors (15-14 overall, 8-5 ACCAC) fell in straight sets to Eastern Arizona College (16-14 overall, 5-8 ACCAC) closing the regular season Friday night.
The Matadors had just seven players on the trip while the Gila Monsters played with great energy in the re-opening of their gymnasium in Thatcher.
The Mats failed to hit above .100 in any set while Melissa Garciglia Banuelos was the only Matador above .100 while registering 11 kills.
The shorthanded Matadors fell 25-11, 25-14, and 25-14 to close out the regular season.
A pair of loses this week means AWC will be on the road Tuesday for the Region I Championship against the Yavapai RoughRiders in Prescott at 7:00pm.
