THE FLATS – After a strong first set, Georgia Tech volleyball (7-9, 2-3 ACC) fell to Boston College (4-11, 1-4 ACC) 3-1 in Conte Forum on Friday night.

Head coach Michelle Collier says:

“We have to move on. Boston College played a very strong match and was deserving of this win. We have to stay resilient, keep working hard and get ready for another strong opponent on Sunday.”

How it happened:

The Jackets came out ready to go, taking the first four points before the Eagles got one on the board. Tech stayed in a rhythm, taking a 13-7 advantage before the Eagles called a timeout. Boston College pulled back within three, but Tech maintained control and extended its lead to 22-17, forcing the Eagles to call their second timeout. Boston College battled their way back in it again but a kill from sophomore Kodie Comby gave Tech set point before freshman Cori Clifton hammered one home from the right side to seal the set at 25-21 for the Jackets.

Eagles came back ready and the Jackets were not, calling a timeout early as Boston College opened the set with a 5-2 lead. The trend continued as Boston College used an 11-1 lead to put the set out of reach. Sophomore Simone Spencer entered the match to end the Jackets’ dry spell at 15-4 with a block but the Eagles put away the set at 25-17 and even the score at a set apiece.

The teams stayed close to start the third until a 4-0 run by the Eagles incited Tech to call a timeout as Boston College took a 10-5 advantage. The Jackets began to find their stride, coming within two at 14-12 as a huge swing from senior Ashley Askin found the floor, causing Boston College to call a timeout. Tech came within one off another kill from Askin at 15-14 but the Eagles broke back out to a 19-15 lead as Tech called a timeout. Boston College pocketed the set at 25-19 for the 2-1 lead.

Boston College came out ahead yet again but the Jackets kept it close. Collier called a timeout as the Eagles put up three in a row to take a 13-9 lead. Tech managed to bring it back within two with the Eagles calling their first timeout at 21-19. The Jackets came up just short as the Eagles took the set at 25-20 for the 3-1 win.
