Cal State Fullerton women’s volleyball fell in straight sets (16-25, 13-25, 16-25) to Long Beach State on the road Saturday night. The results moved the Titans’ record to 1-18 overall and 0-10 in Big West play.
Fullerton hung on early in set one, with a Bianca Martinez and Ryleigh Garis block followed by a Aubrey Beaver kill to tie the game at seven. Beaver made another kill later in the set while Martinez added two more, but Beach ran away with the match in the first, 25-16.
The Titans took an early 8-6 lead in the second frame after a Garis dump kill and a block by Ketesia Hall and Laura Williams. Long Beach State later scored seven straight points to go up 18-10 before Martinez stopped the run with a kill. Beach took the set, 25-13.
In the third set, Fullerton again took an early 6-5 lead after kills from Ameena Campbell and Williams and a solo block from Hall. Campbell and Williams tallied kills later in the set, and a single by Campbell prevented a match-point opportunity for Long Beach State. But Beach won the third, 25-16, to take the game, 3-0.
The Titans return next week for games against Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara, first taking on the Mustangs on Friday, October 27, at 6:00 pm PT.
