CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Lasell University men's volleyball team dropped a non-conference match to the Engineers of MIT, 3-0 on Tuesday night.
The Lasers fall to an overall record of 9-10 while MIT improves to 11-3.
The Lasers competed early on in the first set by trading points until the 10-7 mark. The Engineers went on an eight-point run with junior setter Nathan Wang (Saratoga, Calif.) behind the service line. Later on in the set, MIT produced another six-point run to extend their lead to 24-9 before a Lasers service error to close out the set.
Again, the Lasers stuck with the Engineers for the early going in the second set. With a 14-12 lead, the home team began to separate. MIT would go on to win 25-17 with a few kills from sophomore Troy Oliveira (San Diego, Calif.).
In the third and final set, the Lasers found themselves within two points at 21-19 after a service ace from freshman Jesus Garcia (Honolulu, Hawaii). The Engineers went on to outscore the Lasers 4-2 to close out the set.
