LISLE, Ill. -- Visiting Alverno College lost a Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference match to host Benedictine University, 3-0, tonight in the Rice Center.
The defending NACC co-champion Eagles (6-8, 3-0 NACC) recorded nine team blocks on the night, which accounted for nearly half of the Inferno's attack errors.
Alverno (7-6, 1-2) led the first set 3-1, but Benedictine made it short lived for the 25-16 final. The Eagles never trailed in the second and third sets which they won 25-15 and 25-10.
Next up for the Inferno is the Silver Lake College Lakers on Thursday. First serve is at 7 p.m. in Reiman Gymnasium on the Alverno campus.
