On Saturday, Aug. 26 the Nicholls State University volleyball team took on the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.

After going up 12-10 the Golden Eagles took control of the game with a run of their own, scoring seven unanswered.

The Colonels scored six points the rest of the set leading to a 25-18 win for the Golden Eagles in set one.

Nicholls looked to even the score in set two, scoring the first two points in the set 

The Colonels did not keep the lead for long as the Golden Eagles went on a 5-1 run to take a two-point lead over the Colonels.

Nicholls ended the run on an Autumn Perry kill, but the team could not take control of the set and fell 25-10 in set two.

Oral Roberts opened the scoring in set three with five unanswered points.

Nicholls kept pace with Oral Roberts, staying within six points until an Oral Roberts kill extended the team’s lead to 17-9.
