DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College volleyball team pushed Rowan to the limit, but the Profs captured a 15-10 final in the decisive fifth set to take the match.
The two teams alternated set wins all evening. Rowan (2-0) cruised to a 25-10 win in the first set, before Wesley (1-4) jumped out to a lead early to claim a 25-20 win in the second set. The Profs would take a hard fought 25-21 win in the third set to put the Wolverines' backs against the wall. But Wesley fought back to take a lead in the fourth set, attempting to force the fifth set. Rowan, however, would battled back and tie things at 23-23 before Wesley won the final two points and swing the momentum back in their favor.
In the fifth set, Rowan jumped ahead 8-3, but had to hold on for a 15-10 win.
Wesley is back in action on September 10-11 at the Garnet Classic hosted by Swarthmore.
