Bacone volleyball fell 3-1 to Our Lady of the Lake University Friday tonight at the Palmer Center.
OLLU took the first set 25-14, the third 25-13, and the final set 25-12.
Bacone won the second, 25-19.
Lady Warrior Head Coach Jacob Rodriquez said consistency was key in Friday night's game.
“We didn’t have it,” said Rodriquez. “That’s a great team and we knew that coming in.”
Despite the loss, the first-year coach said Bacone proved they could play with OLLU.
“We took a set from them, but it just wasn’t enough,” he said. “We couldn’t carry the momentum. We couldn’t continue it.”
OLLU increased a 15-8 first set lead to 21-12 the Saints blew ahead, 25-14.
Rodriquez said fatigue played a factor in the home loss.
“This is our third match in three nights,” he said. “We started on the road at Kansas, and didn’t get back until 2 in the morning.”
However, Rodriquez said they have to fight through playing back to back games.
“The good teams do it," he added, "and I believe we are a good team. We have to be able to do that.”
Sophomore Jade Tigilau said adjustments need to be made.
“It's little things like moving our feet and getting faster,” she said. “ I feel like we could have won. We should have won.”
Tigilau said she and her teammates can beat SWCU again.
“I’m very confident we can,” the Long Beach, Calif. native said. “I’m not being cocky, but I have faith in my team.”
For a repeat Southwestern Christian win, Bacone senior Aisha Colbert said they need to practice.
“If we don’t practice we won’t have a good game,” the Tulsa mid-blocker said. “If we go in there focused we can sweep them again.”
