Miami Falls to Boston College, 3-1

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.  The University of Miami volleyball team came up short Friday night, falling on the road, 3-1, to Boston College at the Margot Connell Recreation Center.

Miami (13-9, 6-5 ACC) won the second set, 26-24, and held a four-point lead late in set four before the Eagles rallied to narrowly win the frame, 25-23, for the victory.

Boston College (15-10, 3-8 ACC) used a 5-1 start to set the tone early in the opening set. After a 5-0 Hurricanes run cut the deficit to four, 20-16, Boston College regained the momentum to take set one, 25-20.

But Miami battled back.

Down 24-22 in the second set, the Hurricanes won the next four points to win the frame, 26-24, and tie the match.

Boston College then controlled set three, winning 25-17, and erased Miami’s 19-14 advantage in the fourth set to down the Hurricanes, 3-1.

Redshirt junior outside hitter Angela Grieve totaled a co-match-high 15 kills and senior setter Savannah Vach recorded a match-high 41 assists. Sophomore libero Yaidaliz Rosado led the Hurricanes with 17 digs.

Junior outside hitter Katrina Jensen matched Grieve’s 15-kill total to pace the Eagles. Junior setter Grace Penn registered a team-high 23 assists while junior libero Anna Murphy notched a match-high 20 digs.

Miami will look to get back in the win column Sunday, Oct. 30 when it visits Syracuse (10-11, 6-5 ACC). First serve is set for 1 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra.
