Freshman Justin Tharau (Burlington, Conn.) finished the match with seven kills in nine tries, including a four-kill performance in the second set. In that set, the Falcons cruised to a dominating 25-9 victory.

Matt Brancaccio (West Haven, Conn.) also played in the final set and recorded two kills in three tries. Albertus recorded 22 kills in 33 tries in the final set, while Yeshiva recorded just 13 kills total on the night. Yeshiva dropped to 3-11 on the year with the loss.
