VB | Gaels Fall In Straight Sets At Portland
PORTLAND, Ore. — Another balanced effort Saturday powered the Saint Mary's women's volleyball team's play, but host Portland was able to take leads in each set and hold them en route to a 3-0 (25-20, 25-22, 25-21) West Coast Conference sweep at the Chiles Center.
HOW IT HAPPENED
· Portland (10-4, 1-1 WCC) grabbed leads within the first five points of both set one and set three, then led the rest of the way to take both sets.
