DENVER, Colo. - If ever a match was supposed to be a three-set sweep, it was Saturday's Metro State/CSU-Pueblo match. But the Pack fought valiantly, earning one set win and falling three sets to one to the Roadrunners.
After trailing for every point during the first two sets, 25-16 and 25-15 wins for Metro State, the ThunderWolves brought it to the Roadrunners in set three, jumping out to a 6-1 lead and leading by as much as 16-10.
The set seemed to unravel as Metro recorded seven straight points, with three of which coming on CSU-Pueblo errors and another three coming off service aces, as the Roadrunners took a 17-16 lead.
But the ThunderWolves regrouped and finished a seesaw set in a big way, cashing in on two consecutive Metro attack errors while the set was tied at 23, gaining the 25-23 victory.
Metro State then took the fourth set, 25-11.
The ThunderWolves fall to 3-15 and 1-9 in the RMAC with the loss while Metro improves to 11-7 overall and 9-2 in the RMAC.
