Box Score

ORONO, MAINE - Lindsay Allman had 20 kills and 11 digs for Maine (14-12, 7-5) as they defeated visiting Binghamton (14-14, 8-3) 3-2 (26-24 29-27 15-25 24-26 15-12) in an America East volleyball match from Orono, Maine on Friday night.

The match featured three games that went past 25 points and the difference proved to be the fifth and final set, in which the Black Bears jumped out to a slight lead and the Bearcats could not catch them.

The Bearcats did trail 2-0 early in the match but showed some toughness by taking the next two sets to even the score.

"It was one of those matches with a lot of streaks and a lot of momentum changes," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "We needed to play a little better. Now we have to get past this one and look forward to the next one."

The Bearcats were led sophomore hitter Anna Lejina who had a career-high 29 kills. Lejina also hit at a .411 clip (29-6-56). The 29 kills ties the Division I single match record set by Kathleen Schauer last season.

Lejina was aided on offense by classmate Michelle McDonough who recorded 17 kills. Junior Dawn Lammert tacked on 10 kills and senior Ashley Allen added 9.

Senior libero Jaclyn Strader tallied a team-high 19 digs and senior Katie Thomas established a new career-high with 18 digs.

Sophomore setter Lindsey Mueller had a solid game by dishing out a season-high 58 assists to go along with 10 digs and three blocks.

Binghamton's final home match of the season will be tomorrow against New Hampshire at 5 p.m. on the road.

Notes: In this match the Bearcats set season-highs in kills (72), digs (88) and assists (66)
