After dropping the first two games, the Foresters put together a dramatic comeback to earn the 28-30, 20-30, 30-28, 30-28, 15-11 victory over Goshen College. The win moves the Foresters to 16-5 on the year and marked the 200th career victory for Coach Dave Schroeder.
"Goshen came out and completely took us out of our game," said Coach Schroeder. "We couldn't stop their outside hitter. That, coupled with a lot of unforced errors on our part, kept the momentum in Goshen's favor."
In the final three games, the Maple Leafs built early leads by as many as six points, but HU fought back late in each game to get the come-from-behind win. "The positive we can take from this match is, one, we didn't give up, and two, we played well at the right time," said Coach Schroeder.
Brittney Smelser led the Foresters with 25 kills in the match. Kayley Cervenka added eight kills and a team high 10 blocks. Alyssa Schroeder had 44 assists, four aces and three blocks and Stephanie Stearns had 21 digs.
