VB: Matadors Fall to #6 USUE

PRESCOTT, Ariz---For the third time in two days at the Dalton Overstreet Invitational at Yavapai College, the Arizona Western Matadors (2-5 overall) saw a top ten opponent, falling to #6 Utah State Eastern Friday afternoon in straight sets.

Utah State Eastern may have worked their way even further up the rankings after a win Thursday night over #2 Odessa, a team that the Matadors took a set from earlier in the tournament.

Friday afternoon, the Matadors pulled closer as the match went on, but ultimately fell 25-12, 25-19, 25-22.

Daniela Jimenez Paz led the Matadors in kills again with 10, but freshman middle Kaylani Reis added 6 to help generate offense for AWC.

The Matadors will wrap up the trip to Prescott with another tough test, a 1:00pm match against Southern Idaho on Saturday.

The game will be streamed on goroughriders.com
