THE FLATS – Georgia Tech senior Jennifer Percy had 11 kills and Ivona Kolak had a career-high 14 digs, but the Wake Forest Demon Deacons downed the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in straight sets (27-29, 17-25, 19-25) Sunday at O’Keefe Gym.

With the loss, Georgia Tech falls to 7-13 on the season and 1-7 in ACC action, while the Demon Deacons snap a four-game losing skid to improve to 13-7 overall and 2-6 in league play.

The teams were even in almost every category, but the biggest difference was Tech’s 10 service errors to Wake Forest’s four. The Deacons out-blocked Tech 11-to-8 and were slightly more efficient on the attack with a .143 hitting percentage to Georgia Tech’s .102 clip.

The Jackets and Deacons battled for every point in the opening frame. The Yellow Jackets started the game hot, jumping out to a 12-3 lead, but Wake Forest fought back into the set and knotted the score 16-16.  From there, there were seven tied scores and each team was poised at set-point twice. Wake Forest had the advantage 28-27 and put the set away on a Tech attacking error, 29-27.

Both teams stayed within three-points of each other in game two. The Deacons had a one-point advantage, 15-14, and rallied for five-straight to open the gap, 20-14. Wake Forest used that momentum to finish out the set, 25-17.

The beginning of the third frame was a back-and-forth battle. Wake Forest took the lead 10-9 on a Tech attacking error and kept the lead for the remainder of the set, winning 25-19.

The Jackets are back in action Friday, Oct. 25 at ACC newcomer Syracuse. First serve is set for 7 p.m. at the Women’s Building.
