Lady Chants suffer another five-set loss to Lady Bucs

The Coastal Carolina volleyball team once again went five sets in conference play falling to Charleston Southern University 3-2 on the road. Coastal took the first and third sets while CSU won the second, fourth and fifth sets.

Coastal was led by freshman Gabriella Horvath who had 16 kills and 10 digs good for a double-double. She also added a solo and two block assists to complete her line. Junior Kindra Bailey had 13 kills and a team-high seven blocks including one solo. Freshman Eszter Nagy had 10 kills and just one error to record a .429 attack percentage. She also had five block assists.

Senior Jamie DiMaggio led the way in digs with 13 while sophomore Jenna Orner added 12.

The Chants fall to 5-10 on the season and 3-2 in Big South play while the Lady Bucs improve to 8-12 overall and 3-2 in BSC action.

The opening set was back-and-forth early with neither team taking more than a one-point lead. Midway through the set with the Chants holding a slim 12-11 advantage Coastal went on a 3-0 run thanks to Nagy and Horvath. Nagy and Horvath traded kills to give the Chants three-straight points which caused the Charleston Southern coach to call his first timeout of the match. Following the timeout both teams traded points until a 6-0 run by the Lady Buccaneers gave CSU a 19-17 lead. A kill by Bailey ended the run and cut the Lady Bucs lead to just one. After another round of back-and-forth action a small run gave the Lady Bucs a 23-20 lead and a clear path to the set victory but the Chants would answer once again with a 6-1 run to close out the set 26-24. Horvath provided three of the points with kills, four Chants combined for a pair of blocks while Nagy added a kill. In all the Chants had six blocks in the set while hitting .200.

The Lady Bucs took control of the second set from the beginning as they opened with a 3-1 run. CSU would hold the lead the entire but a late run by the Chants made it interesting. Trailing 18-14 the Chants went on a small 3-0 run to cut the Lady Bucs lead to just one which caused the CSU coach to call his first timeout of the set. The Lady Buccaneers came out of the timeout swinging and went on a 7-0 run to close out the set 25-17.

The third set saw the Chants jump out to the early lead but the Lady Bucs were able to reel them in and most of the set had both teams within a point of each other. With the score tied at 16 the Lady Bucs began a 5-0 run to take a 21-16 advantage. A 5-1 run by the Chants cut the lead to just one but a ball handling error by the Chants ended the run and gave the Lady Bucs a 23-21 lead. CSU added a kill to earn their first set point of the stanza but a service error and a bad set kept the Chants hopes alive at 24-23. With the set on the line the Chants serve found the net and gave the Lady Bucs a 25-23 set win.

After a 3-3 opening of the fourth set the Chants rolled off an 8-1 run to take a commanding 11-4 lead. The Chants would never relinquish that lead the rest of the set. A 9-3 run by the Lady Bucs cut the lead to just one at 14-13 but a kill by Nagy and an error by the Lady Bucs gave the Chants another multi-point lead. The Lady Bucs cut the lead to two at 20-18 but once again the Chants answered this time in the form of Kindra Bailey who had a kill and a solo block to put CCU back up by four. The Lady Bucs fought off two set points late but a kill by Bailey ended the set, 25-21.

The fifth set opened with the Chants taking a quick 3-0 lead but the Lady Bucs answered with a 4-1 run to tie the set at four. Coastal answered by taking a two-point lead and holding that lead until the 11-11 mark of the set. From the 11-11 mark the Lady Bucs went on a 4-1 run to close the set and match 15-11.

The Chanticleers will return to action next Friday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. as they host conference foe Radford at The HTC Center.
