The Lady Hornets could not pull off the season sweep of Santa Ana College on the road Wednesday losing to the Dons in five games.
It was not a walk in the park for Fullerton like it was the last time they swept Santa Ana 3-0 at home last month.
The Dons stunned the Hornets taking game one 25-22, but FC fought back winning game two 25-23. The third game was all Santa Ana as they dismantled Fullerton 25-14. In game four, Fullerton eked out a 25-22 win, but the Dons clinched the fifth and final game 15-10. The Hornets had their chance with 9-8 lead in the middle of the set, but the Dons went on a 7-1 run to seal the Orange Empire Conference victory.
Kaylyn Johnson put forth her best effort for the Hornets with a season-high 18 kills. Cambria Schuitema totaled 11 kills while Andrea Lopez and Kailyn Case both totaled 8 kills. Lopez also had 15 digs and Case contributed 39 assists. Priscilla Gutierrez had 19 digs and Maya Maldonado had 17 digs.
Up Next: The Hornets (6-11 overall, 3-8 OEC) will host Saddleback College this Friday, October 27th at 6:00 pm.
