Bulldogs unable to hold off Eagles

 Carr had four kills during the spurt and then Smith, who ended the set with an ace, provided four kills in the final 10 points.

“She’s a fiery kid,” Benson said of Smith. “She likes to compete, she’s always talking and she did a great job of turning it around for out team there. And Kayla Carr, she kind of got into her rhythm and figured out what she can and can’t do. Then she just went from there.”

Paired with a couple of kills from Rodriguez, the duo added three kills apiece in a commanding 25-14 win to close out the match.

 The dominant finish overshadowed a slow start for the Eagles, who committed seven errors on serve in the opening set. Meanwhile the Bulldogs used back-to-back of kills from Malia Gandy, a kill from Jasmine Middelton and a Molly Woodward ace to cap off a 5-0 run to end the opener with a 25-18 win.

“We let the ball drop without effort and I swear we hit every ball out there for awhile,” Benson said.

 But the Eagles responded with a dicey 25-23 win, capitalizing on a Rodriguez kill and a Rodgers ace to take knot the set tally.
