How It Happened

• The Spartans jumped all over the Knights in the opening points of the first set. York scored six of the first seven points of the game to take the early advantage. The Knights would battle back and tie the set at 10-10. There were two more ties before the Spartans took the lead for good at 13-12. York held a 17-16 lead and then went on a 5-0 spurt to take a 22-16 lead. York closed out the first set, winning 25-21.

• The Knights got off to a fast start in the second set but York quickly rebounded to recapture the lead. York pushed out to a 12-6 lead and eventually stretched the lead to eight at 18-10. York's lead would grow to 10 as they cruised to the 25-15 set two win.

• The third set was back and forth early on before York went on a 5-1 run to take an 11-6 lead. The Knights trimmed the lead to three at 12-9 but that would be as close they would get the rest of the way. The Spartans did a fantastic job of closing out the match as the Knights would make small runs only to have the Spartans answer the challenge as they picked up the key conference win with the 25-16 third set victory.

How It Happened

Notes:

The Spartans are now 3-3 all-time against the Knights while they are 22-0 all-time against the Hood Blazers … Wolf Gymnasium suffered a 10 minute power outage at the start of the Hood match … after finding a portable scoreboard the teams began the game and played the first eight points without the benefits of the usual gymnasium lighting … the Spartans have won four straight … the Spartans have now had three four-game win streaks for the year … the Spartans are now a game out of third place while they have a half a game lead on Salisbury for fourth place … fourth place is the final home seed in the opening round of the CAC Tournament … York now has 10 three-set victories … the Spartans are now 17-6 in the third set.
