New Haven, Conn. - Despite a six-kill performance from freshman Felix Rivas (Danbury, Conn.), the Albertus Magnus College men's volleyball team lost to non-conference foe CCNY in three-straight sets on Tuesday evening at "The Nest".

HOW IT HAPPENED
CCNY opened set one with the early 6-0 advantage before the Beavers pushed their lead to 15, 20-5, heading into a Falcons' timeout. CCNY closed out the set with a 5-2 run to take the 1-0 lead.

In the second set, Albertus Magnus trailed the visitors 6-5 before CCNY found themselves ahead 12-5 following a kill by David Cham. The Falcons battled back to within four, 15-11, but the Beavers secured the 2-0 lead heading into the final set, following the 25-17 win.

Similar to the first, CCNY opened the set with a 6-0 run, but the Falcons managed to cut the visitors' lead to one, 7-6, after a kill from Rivas. However, from that point on CCNY slowly began pulling away with the lead and defeated the Falcons 25-13 in the third and final set.
