WILLIAMSBURG, VA (UNCW) -– Senior Christi Laite became just the sixth player in program history to record 1,000 kills, but UNCW suffered a 3-2 (17-25, 22-25, 27-25, 25-20, 15-11) setback to William & Mary Friday in Colonial Athletic Association volleyball action Friday at Kaplan Arena.
The Tribe moved to 6-12 overall and evened their league mark at 1-1 while the Seahawks moved to 11-6 and 0-3.
“It was an exciting match on both sides and we made some crucial errors that let William & Mary back in the game in sets 3 and 4,” said UNCW Head Coach Amy Bambenek. “Defensively this was one of our best digging matches I have witnessed. The team fought hard and we know we will get another chance at the Tribe soon.”
Laite’s milestone kill, which came in the second set, was one of 12 spikes on the evening for the Severna Park, Md., product. She was one of three Seahawks to reach double figures as junior Morgan Kline led all players with 19 while freshman Nicole Lott added 11.
Sophomore Lindsay Hartmann pitched in a career-high 33 digs to pace a Seahawks defense that finished with 114 digs, its highest single-match team dig total since the start of rally scoring in 2001.
Freshman Nicole Lott added 28 bumps to post her first career double-double while Kline pitched in 20 digs for her third double-double of the season. Freshman Alyssa Desjardins tallied 16 digs to go along with 28 assists for her second career double-double. Senior Haley Collins notched 11 digs and added 20 assists for her first career double-double.
Liz Brown tallied 13 kills and Mallory Brickerd pitched in 12 to pace a balanced Tribe lineup that saw four players record double-digit kills. Dessi Koleva notched 10 kills and added 16 digs for the double-double. Paige Lucas dished out a match-best 44 assists and Paulette Grand-Pre paced six William & Mary players in double-digit digs with 28.
UNCW cruised to a 25-17 victory in the first set, racing out to a quick 6-1 lead on its way to the eight-point victory.
With the score tied at 21-all in the second set, A Tribe attack error led the Seahawks to score four of the final five points of the frame to take a 25-21 win and build a 2-0 lead.
The Tribe extended the match with a 27-25 triumph in the third set, staving off match point on two occasions before using a Seahawk attack error and a kill by Brown to keep the match going.
In a tight fourth set that featured nine ties and five lead changes, William and Mary used an 8-3 spurt to break a 17-all tie and force a fifth set with a 25-20 decision.
The Tribe carried their momentum into the fifth set, taking an early 6-3 lead on its way to building a 14-10 cushion. The Seahawks would pull within three, 14-11, on a spike by senior Courtney Porter, but a kill by Koleva would give the Tribe a 15-11 victory and the match.
UNCW is back in action Sunday as it faces James Madison in a 1 p.m. match. William & Mary is back on the court Saturday as it hosts the College of Charleston in a 7 p.m. contest.
WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW -– Sophomore Maddie McCormick tallied a goal and an assist to lead UNCW to a 2-1 victory over Towson in Colonial Athletic Association women’s soccer action Friday at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.
The Seahawks improved to 6-7-0 overall and 1-2-0 in CAA play as they remained undefeated in four home contests this season. The Tigers, meanwhile, slipped to 6-6-1 and 1-2-0 with the one-goal setback.
McCormick put the Seahawks in front, 1-0, in the fifth minute as she knocked home a loose ball from the middle of the box for her fifth goal of the season.
Junior Katlyn Axenfeld would draw the Tigers level at 1-all at the 23:36 mark when she headed home a cross from senior Emily Banes.
UNCW regained its one-goal advantage just before the end of the first half as sophomore Katrina Guillou used a pass from McCormick to get behind the Tigers defense before playing a ball into the left-hand side of the net for her team-leading sixth goal of the season. Junior Stephanie Bronson was also credited with an assist on the play.
Freshman Carolyn Huddy got the start in goal for the Seahawks and made seven saves as she recorded her first career victory. Junior Erin Quinn made two saves in net for the Tigers.
Towson posted a 10-9 shot advantage in the contest, holding a 6-3 edge in the second half after UNCW enjoyed a 6-4 margin in the first half. The Seahawks attempted seven of the nine corner kicks awarded in the contest.
UNCW returns to action Oct. 11 as it hosts the College of Charleston in a 7 p.m. kickoff at the UNCW Soccer Stadium. Towson is back on the pitch Sunday in a 1 p.m. matchup with the Cougars.
RALEIGH, NC (AP) – Stephen Weiss scored at 3:13 of overtime and the Detroit Red Wings rallied to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 on Friday night.
Henrik Zetterberg scored with 16.4 seconds left in the third to tie it, Justin Abdelkader scored and Jimmy Howard stopped 23 shots to help the Red Wings win their first road game since moving to the Eastern Conference.
Radek Dvorak and Nathan Gerbe scored in their debuts with Carolina, which led 2-0 in the third period but lost its opener for the fourth time in five seasons.
Justin Faulk added two assists and Cam Ward made 35 saves for the Hurricanes.
Zetterberg sent it into overtime when he pushed a loose puck past Ward after a scramble in front of the net. Ward lost his stick while stopping a shot from Daniel Alfredsson a moment earlier.
Weiss then ended it when he stuffed a loose puck past Ward.

RALEIGH, NC (NCSU) — NC State University Chancellor Randy Woodson and Gale Force Holdings President Jim Rutherford announced today a formalized process for scheduling events at PNC Arena, which serves as the home of NC State men’s basketball and Carolina Hurricanes hockey and hosts numerous large indoor events.
The guidelines state that each year by Nov. 1, NC State will release to Gale Force all but three Friday dates between the last week of August through the second week of March for the upcoming academic year to allow hockey games and events to be scheduled on those dates. After July 15 of each year, Fridays not booked by Gale Force will revert back to NC State for use as home basketball dates.
No later than May 15 each year, NC State will release all unbooked dates from the last week of August through Dec. 31, which will allow Gale Force to submit its schedule for Hurricanes games to the NHL by June 1. After the Hurricanes schedule is announced, typically around July 15 each year, all remaining open dates will be released to NC State to fill its non-conference basketball schedule. Between May 15 and July 15, NC State can confirm a non-conference basketball date as long as Gale Force has not requested it to the NHL or booked a non-Hurricanes event.
Gale Force agreed to not schedule Hurricanes games or other events on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays during the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) season until the ACC releases its final schedule. The ACC men’s basketball season runs from Jan. 1 through the second week of March.
No later than Nov. 15 each year, Gale Force will also provide to NC State its list of preferred dates for the subsequent National Hockey League season. NC State will forward Gale Force’s preferred dates to the ACC for informational purposes. If the ACC identifies a potential conflict with a Gale Force preferred date, the ACC will notify NC State and NC State will communicate with Gale Force in order to keep that date free.
NC State will release up to three days from Nov.1 to April 1 at Gale Force’s request in order for Gale Force to schedule major single-day events that will gross more than $500,000. Gale Force can schedule only one of these events within any 30-day period.
As it has for many years, NC State will also continue to release five consecutive days during its fall semester exam period in December so Gale Force can schedule Disney on Ice and release seven to 10 consecutive days in February for the Ringling Bros. Circus. Gale Force will notify NC State of this event’s dates no later than July 15 of the previous year.
The agreement did not change the existing contract. In the agreement, Gale Force acknowledges NC State’s contractual status as the primary and preferred user of PNC, and NC State acknowledges the need to collaborate with Gale Force for the continued success of the arena.
