Powers helps treat Volleyball to sweep of Pembroke

SALISBURY, NC -- Sophomore Melissa Powers (Bennett, NC) delivered 17 kills and four blocks to lead Catawba to a three-game sweep of UNC-Pembroke in volleyball action on Tuesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians win their sixth straight match, taking the match by the scores of 30-24, 30-22 and 30-24.  Catawba improves to 18-11, while the Braves fall to 9-19.

Catawba took an early 8-3 edge in the opening game behind two kills by Powers and an ace by Andi Henderson (Swansboro, NC).  Pembroke would rally back to even the game at 9-9.  Kills by Abigail Parker (Greenville, NC) and Heidi Platow (Wilmington, NC) helped the Braves to an 18-17 edge, but an ace by Mai Zoua Lo (Hickory, NC) and a block and kill by Powers put Catawba ahead 22-18.  The Braves pulled within 23-22 only to see Catawba score seven of the next nine points.

Powers had three kills and an ace early in game two as Catawba took an 18-11 edge.  UNCP trimmed the deficit to 18-15 on a block by Rebekah Niesborella (Huntersville, NC), but a pair of kills by Amanda Nantz (Troutman, NC) helped push the Tribe lead to 21-16.  Powers had three kills late in the game.

The deciding game was a back-and-forth battle until the late stages.  A kill by Powers and an ace by Henderson gave Catawba a 21-19 edge.  Following a kill by Pembroke’s Alicia Hill (Bennett, NC), Catawba reeled off five straight points to take control.  

Powers was the only player on either team to reach double figures in kills.  She was followed by Nantz and Melissa Griffith (Williamsburg, VA), who each had seven for Catawba.  Henderson had 33 assists, 14 digs, two blocks and a pair of aces.  Parker led the Braves with nine kills and 14 digs.  Lexi Wood (McKinney, TX) had 12 digs and 12 assists.
