GOODWELL, Okla. (September 19, 2013) – An efficient night by Tyler Webster allowed Lubbock Christian to make quick work of Oklahoma Panhandle State, rolling the Aggies in three sets Thursday night at the Oscar Williams Field House. Webster's 10 kills along with her .769 attack percentage are both career highs.
Webster accounted for the Lady Chaps (4-6, 2-1 Heartland) first kill in game one, tying the game at 2-2, and a Kacey Deterding kill from Mallory Powell again knotted the game, this time at 5-5. With Powell serving, LCU scored three straight points to bump ahead 8-5 before two attack errors from the Lady Chaps brought the home team to within one. Christa Daniel then made the most out of her time behind the serving line, stringing five straight points with the help of kills by Webster and Abby White to increase LCU's lead to 15-9. A Deterding kill increased the Lady Chap lead to 21-14, and a block by White and Ariel Froeschl ran up the score one more, with the set then quickly concluding at 25-16 for an LCU win.
In game two with Lubbock Christian leading 8-6, Erin Fisher subbed in, quickly making an impact for her team. She assisted on two Deterding kills and accounted for a service ace to put the Lady Chaps up 11-6. Three more kills, one each from Deterding, White and Webster, put LCU ahead 14-8. The Aggies closed the gap at 18-14, but LCU answered promptly and put away the set at 25-19.
The Lady Chaps rapidly jumped out to a 3-0 lead over OPSU (2-7, 0-3 Heartland) in the third set and never looked back. Kyleigh Lucia accounted for her ninth service ace on the season, pushing the score to 6-1. A kill by Webster doubled the Lady Chap advantage at 14-7, and her next kill advanced to score 17-8. The Aggies cracked double-digits on a Melissa Marshall kill to make it 19-10, but the damage had been done, and the Lady Chaps went on to close the game and match at 25-15.
Deterding tallied game-highs of 10 kills and nine digs, while Fisher tossed out 21 assists, also a game-high.
For OPSU, Sarah Koster had six kills and Skylar Mayeux registered 15 assists.
Lubbock Christian heads to Wichita, Kan., for a matchup against Newman University on Saturday at noon.
