UNI opens home season with sweep of Marquette

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Bre Payton tallied 11 kills and zero attack errors as UNI opened their home schedule with a 3-0 victory over visiting Marquette.

The Panthers cruised to victories of 25-18 and 25-13 in the first 2 games, but ran into some trouble in the third.  UNI came out flat and near the end, found themselves trailing the Golden Eagles 19 to 14.  The Panthers outscored Marquette 10-5 to knot the match at 24 a piece.  Payton then came up with a huge solo block for a 25-24 lead, while a Megan Lehman kill ended the match with UNI winning game 3, 26-24.

The win was the 21st straight regular season victory in the McLeod Center.  The Panthers (4-0) now head to the Delaware tournament to face Florida State on Friday.
