Lafayette, LA (ASU) — The Arkansas State Red Wolves (13-10, 7-4) saw their six-match win streak snapped Saturday night, dropping a 3-1 decision to the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns (15-12, 5-6) on the road.
ULL jumped out to an early 2-0 set lead, winning the first two 25-21 and 25-20. The Red Wolves battled back to take set three 25-23, but the Ragin' Cajuns held on to take the match with a 25-19 set four victory.
"This is was far from a good performance by any player," said ASU head coach Justin Ingram. "Our expectations are way higher than what we achieved today, and we need to certainly be better in order to beat anybody in this conference. We have a couple of opponents coming up that are very tough, so we need to get back to work and take care of the things that aren't helping us win these matches."
Junior Cayla Fielder and freshman Sadie Clark led the ASU offense with 11 kills each, followed by sophomore Jasmine Terry with 10. Sophomore Allison Kearney and freshman Megan Baska both put in double-digit digs, posting 16 and 10 respectively. Kearney added 37 assists and two service aces.
Arkansas State will return to Sun Belt Conference action in Jonesboro when it hosts Denver Nov. 5 at 7:00 p.m. The Red Wolves topped the Pioneers 3-0 earlier this season for their first-ever win over DU on the road.
