Volleyball Spikes Another Win

By Andy Combs, Staff Writer

 

The SOU Volleyball team is continuing to pound its way through a successful season so

far. They took another win Saturday as they shut down Northwest

Christian University 3-0 in Eugene. Motade Atanda with 14 kills and Paulla Pinheiro

with 13 kills lead the team to victory. The team is currently ranked 10th  with a 17-3

record overall.

The Raider’s fell to 7th place in NAIA rankings with their dramatic 42-40 loss to

Carroll College Saturday in Helena, Montana. The final play that ended the game

for SOU saw the Raiders’ unsuccessful attempt at a two-point conversion with

just 24 seconds left in the fourth quarter. With 1,026 combined yards of offense,

quarterback Austin Dodge and the offense gave it their all bringing the Raiders up

from a 27-42 deficit, but even with an flawless on-side kick exacted by Alex Nelson,

and 27 fourth quarter points, the Raiders still left Montana with their now 6-1 record.

The SOU Women’s soccer team’s chance of entering this year’s playoffs was jeopardized

with a 2-1 loss to Warner Pacific College Saturday. Despite being ahead 1-0 for much

of the game, Warner Pacific’s Presley Lambert tied the game up with a goal in the

64th  minute. Staci Tatum’s game-winning goal came only minutes later. SOU has one

more chance to make it into the playoffs if they can reign victorious over Oregon

Tech next Saturday securing them a spot in the top-six.
