VESTAL N.Y. - Sophomore hitter Michelle McDonough posted a career-high 20 kills and grabbed 12 digs to lead Binghamton (5-11) over visiting Robert Morris (10-5) 3-2 (22-25, 25-13 13-25, 25-15, 15-5) at the West Gym on Sunday afternoon.

"It was one of those matches where the momentum was swinging back and forth and it was hard to keep it for any length of time," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "We were lucky to keep it in the fifth game."

The Colonials took the first and third set while the Bearcats were victorious in the second and fourth, setting up the deciding final set.

The Bearcats jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the fifth set on the strength of sophomore Lindsey Mueller's service game. The squad was also aided by three blocks apiece in the final frame by senior Ashley Allen and sophomore Mercedes Montford.

Junior blocker Dawn Lammert knocked down a season-high seven blocks in the match while Allen totaled six.

Senior libero Jaclyn Strader scooped up a match-high 19 digs for the Bearcats.

Mueller had a solid all-around match, tallying 46 assists, four kills and eight digs.

Binghamton will begin America East play at home on Friday against Stony Brook at 7 p.m. The match will be the second of a current five-match home stand.
