RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Cal State Fullerton took all the momentum early, but couldn't quite keep it going, as UC Riverside earned a 3-1 (23-25, 25-12, 25-15, 25-23) victory over the Titans, Saturday evening at SRC Arena.
The Titans (4-14, 0-5 Big West) came out with energy early, battling the Highlanders (9-8, 1-4 Big West) point for point in the opening set, eventually squeaking out a 25-23 opening set victory. Fullerton recorded a spectacular .382 attack percentage.
However, UCR took control in the second and third sets, earning 25-12 and 25-15 wins to take a 2-1 advantage. The Titans did all they did to force a fifth and decided set in the fourth, but came up just short after leading most of the way. Fullerton eventually fell in the fourth set, despite recording a .359 attack percentage, while committing just two errors.
Fullerton will return home to take on UC Irvine, Friday at 7 pm PT. It'll be the first of a three-match homestand.
