RESULTS VS. BARTON* (2008-09-27 00:00:00)

Misenheimer, NC – The Pfeiffer University Falcons opened their Homecoming weekend with a women’s volleyball match against Barton College. Over 200 spectators packed Merner gymnasium to watch the Falcons win in 4 games (25-14, 15-25, 25-13, 25-18).
The best the Barton Bulldogs were able to do was tie the score at 4-4 before the Pfeiffer Falcons pulled away, taking game one 25-14. Pfeiffer saw a team effort in attacking for their first set against the visitors. Lauren Dickens (Wake Forest, NC), Brittany Dickens (Wake Forest, NC), Victoria Parrish (Henderson, NC) and Petra Ljubicic (Asheboro, NC) all contributed to Pfeiffer’s kill tally. Lauren Dickens and Brittney Poole (Sparta, NC) were each able to earn services aces against Barton in their first set win.
Game two took quite a different turn with the Bulldogs frustrating the Falcons for most of the set. Barton’s Krystin Moore (Garner, NC), Stacy Way (Graham, NC), and Liz Strange (Henderson, NC) worked the net together and blocked many of Pfeiffer’s attacks. The visitors took the lead early in the set and kept the Falcons at bay. Pfeiffer continued the attack, but Barton’s fast response to the changing offense resulted in Pfeiffer having to work harder for every point earned. Barton closed out the game 15-25 with a kill by Way.
Pfeiffer looked revived in game three, controlling most of the play with strong attacks by Ljubicic. The Falcons cleaned up their defense and respond better to Barton’s attacks. Pfeiffer found their first lead since game one at 7-6. Lauren Dickens helped the Falcons pull away with strong kills to finish out a couple of long rallies. Barton sophomore Melissa Ritter (Wescosville, PA) blasted a powerful kill to try to stop Pfeiffer at the last moment, but the next play resulted in a 25-13 Falcon win.
The Falcons wrapped up the match by taking the fourth game 25-18. Ljubicic was once again a dominant offensive presence. Overall the Falcon’s play was a bit inconsistent with service and hitting errors, but Barton was unable to take advantage of the misplays and take the set.
Pfeiffer was led by Lauren Dickens with 14 kills. Sister Brittany Dickens had three blocks and Brittney Poole tallied three aces. The Falcons remain undefeated in Conference Carolinas actions (5-0) and are now 11-2 overall. Head Coach Ben Guiliano said, “With the exception of game two, we executed fairly well. We’re moving in the right direction. Consistency is our biggest goal right now.”
Barton was led by Ritter who had 14 kills in the match. Way tallied five blocks and Strange had 18 digs. Freshman Cami Fledderman (Batesville, IN) had two aces. The Bulldogs are now 1-10 overall and 0-4 in Conference Carolinas play.
The Falcons play Mt. Olive and the University of Puerto Rico on Sunday in Misenheimer.Volleyball Box Score BCVB vs Pfeiffer (Sept 27,2008 at Misenheimer, NC) BCVB ATTACK SET SERVE SRV DEF BLOCK GEN ## Player SP K E TA PCT A SA SE RE DIG BS BA BE BHE Totals 4 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 TOTAL TEAM BLOCKS: 0.0 TEAM ATTACK BY SET Set K E TA Pct 1 0 0 0 .000 2 0 0 0 .000 3 0 0 0 .000 4 0 0 0 .000 SET SCORES 1 2 3 4 TEAM RECORDS BCVB (1) 14 25 12 18 1-9, 0-3 Pfeiffer (3) 25 15 25 25 11-2, 5-0 Pfeiffer ATTACK SET SERVE SRV DEF BLOCK GEN ## Player SP K E TA PCT A SA SE RE DIG BS BA BE BHE 1 Dickens, Lauren 4 14 5 24 .375 0 2 1 0 1 0 2 0 0 2 Ljubicic, Petra 4 12 3 35 .257 0 0 2 0 7 0 1 0 0 5 Gray, Erin 1 1 1 3 .000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 6 Lee, Courtney 4 3 2 13 .077 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 7 Wands, Colleen 3 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 8 Markham, Kaci 4 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 9 Dickens, Brittany 4 6 2 19 .211 0 0 0 0 2 1 2 0 0 11 Poole, Brittney 4 0 0 0 .000 1 3 1 1 6 0 0 0 0 12 Parrish, Victoria 4 7 5 27 .074 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 13 Harris, Hope 1 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 23 Liebert, Morgan 4 1 5 8 -.500 40 0 3 0 4 0 0 0 0 Totals 4 44 23 129 .163 41 5 8 2 23 1 8 0 0 TOTAL TEAM BLOCKS: 5.0 TEAM ATTACK BY SET Set K E TA Pct 1 12 5 30 .233 2 7 10 36 -.083 3 11 2 26 .346 4 14 7 43 .163 Site: Misenheimer, NC (Merner Gymnasium) Date: Sept 27,2008 Attend: 300 Time: Referees: Volleyball Detailed Stats Volleyball Detailed Stats BCVB vs Pfeiffer (Sept 27,2008 at Misenheimer, NC) BCVB ATTACK ASSIST SERVE BLOCKING RECEPT ## Player SP K E TA PCT A E TA Pct SA SE TA Pct Dig BHE BS BA BE 0 RE Pct Totals......... 4 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 .000 TOTAL TEAM BLOCKS: 0.0 TEAM ATTACK BY SET Set K E TA Pct 1 0 0 0 .000 2 0 0 0 .000 3 0 0 0 .000 4 0 0 0 .000 SET SCORES 1 2 3 4 TEAM RECORDS BCVB (1) 14 25 12 18 1-9, 0-3 Pfeiffer (3) 25 15 25 25 11-2, 5-0 Pfeiffer ATTACK ASSIST SERVE BLOCKING RECEPT ## Player SP K E TA PCT A E TA Pct SA SE TA Pct Dig BHE BS BA BE 0 RE Pct 1 Dickens, Lauren 4 14 5 24 .375 0 0 0 .000 2 1 21 .952 1 0 0 2 0 5 0 1.000 2 Ljubicic, Petra 4 12 3 35 .257 0 0 0 .000 0 2 14 .857 7 0 0 1 0 19 0 1.000 5 Gray, Erin 1 1 1 3 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 .000 6 Lee, Courtney 4 3 2 13 .077 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 .000 7 Wands, Colleen 3 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 2 0 0 0 0 6 0 1.000 8 Markham, Kaci 4 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0 0 8 1 .889 9 Dickens, Brittany 4 6 2 19 .211 0 0 0 .000 0 0 11 1.000 2 0 1 2 0 0 0 .000 11 Poole, Brittney 4 0 0 0 .000 1 0 0 .000 3 1 25 .960 6 0 0 0 0 14 1 .933 12 Parrish, Victoria 4 7 5 27 .074 0 0 0 .000 0 1 9 .889 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1.000 13 Harris, Hope 1 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 1 1.000 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 .000 23 Liebert, Morgan 4 1 5 8 -.500 40 0 0 .000 0 3 21 .857 4 0 0 0 0 0 0 .000 Totals......... 4 44 23 129 .163 41 0 0 .000 5 8 102 .922 23 0 1 8 0 53 2 .964 TOTAL TEAM BLOCKS: 5.0 TEAM ATTACK BY SET Set K E TA Pct 1 12 5 30 .233 2 7 10 36 -.083 3 11 2 26 .346 4 14 7 43 .163 Site: Misenheimer, NC (Merner Gymnasium) Date: Sept 27,2008 Attend: 300 Time: Referees: Short Box Score Short Box Score (Match) BCVB vs Pfeiffer (Sept 27,2008 at Misenheimer, NC) Pfeiffer def.
