BOSTON, Mass. – The Lions had more to celebrate than their seniors Saturday afternoon as they stepped up to put down two more GNAC opponents, Lasell and Albertus Magnus to remain undefeated in conference play. Emerson topped Lasell 3-1 and AMC 3-1 to move to 20-6 on the year and a perfect 11-0 GNAC play.
Up first the Lasell Lasers kicked-off the day against the Lions, but Kelsey Scanlon and Madeleine Breeland weren't have any of that plastering 10 kills on the boards each while Alexa Krakowiak and Scanlon shut down the Lasers offense with four total blocks apiece. While Emerson looked to make quick work of Lasell with a 25-17 and 25-16 win to start the match. The Lasers pointed their attack at EC for the third set which they squeaked away 26-24. Emerson made sure to not get too crazy though as the Lions shut the door in the fourth set 25-14 for the W.
The Falcons of Albertus Magnus were up next for the Lions who blasted the doors open in set one to crush a .500 hitting percentage as the senior showcase rolled on with Maddie Breeland going a perfect four-for-four in swings to lead EC as the D stepped up yet again with Alexa Krakowiak and Megan Kaplon both putting up a solo block each to give Emerson a 25-12 win.
The party didn't stop in the second set as EC hit .393 this time around this time with Alexa Krakowiak leading the assault with five kills while the team collected three blocks after taking the first point and never looking back to take a 25-10 win.
The wily seniors were only in the mood for three though as they held AMC to a -.158 attack percentage as EC themselves hit .273 in the set with Jessica Drumright and Kelsey Scanlon keeping the ball rolling as Albertus Magnus didn't even make it to double digits for points with Emerson taking the win with a 25-9 final.
The Lions will return to action this Wednesday as they head to Tufts for a 7:00 p.m. match start.
