PHILADELPHIA – Down two sets to none, the University of the Sciences volleyball team forced a fourth set before running out of gas in a Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) matchup at Chestnut Hill on Wednesday evening.
The result snapped the Devils' four-match win streak, which was their longest since the 2014 season.
After dropping the first two sets 16-25 and 20-25, USciences found themselves down 0-3 early in the third before scoring six of the next seven points.
Chestnut Hill (9-9, 6-4 CACC) stormed back with six unanswered later on though to go on top 15-10, before the Devils closed out the set with a 15-6 run, which included 10 of the final 12 points.
University of the Sciences then scored four of the first five points of the fourth, only to have Chestnut Hill take eight of the next nine en route to running way with the set.
Velez led all players with 13 kills, with Tori Wright falling one shy of double-digits with nine.
Wright and Bryant (season-best) both produced a match-high three aces, while Jennifer Marrero had a match-high high three blocks.
Notably, Bryant also had a season-best five kills.
