The UNO volleyball team played its final competitive home match of the season Tuesday night, losing in straight sets to South Dakota. Before the match, the Mavs honored the personal and athletic achievements of their three seniors- Brittany Hanssen, Emily Myers and Angie Reicks.
That's where the good feelings ended.
Tyler Bullock had a great night on offense, scoring 26 points. Unfortunately for UNO, it needed the senior guard from Lincoln to score 29.
St. Cloud State junior forward Travis Novak scored with 1:04 remaining in Saturday night's game against the Mavs and UNO left St. Cloud with three of a possible four points in the weekend series. After an impressive 3-0 shutout Friday night, the Mavs were unable to hold their third period lead on Saturday, and neither team scored in overtime to produce a winner.
Less than 48 hours after picking up the first win of the year, UNO women's soccer was shutout by conference favorite Oakland 1-0 and dropped to 1-11, 1-1 in conference. The Golden Grizzlies' Abigail Haelewyn had the lone score of the afternoon, scoring from 14 yards out on the right side of the Mav penalty area.
