PROVO -- After five hard-fought sets, BYU’s women’s volleyball team (10-10, 5-4) lost to its in-state rival Utah (14-7, 7-2) in front of an electrifying season-high crowd of 2,249 fans, 25-19, 28-26, 25-23, 15-25, 6-15.

“We were good enough with the group we had, but we lost composure and couldn’t bounce back,” BYU head coach Shay Goulding said. “Utah played a fantastic game the last half.”

The Cougars were led by outside hitter Christie Carpenter with 17 kills, followed by Camilla Phillips who tallied a career high nine kills. Nicole Warner and Christina Measom both finished off the night with eight kills.

Morgan Lloyd Sorensen tied her career high of 24 digs, making this the fourth-straight match with double-digit digs, and Melissa Lake Wright came away with 12 digs, her second-straight match with double-digit digs as well.

The game started with set one going back and forth, but BYU rallied on offense to take the lead and finish the set. Utah came back in the second set with back-to-back unanswered point runs as the taking an early lead. After a brief timeout, the Cougars bounced back with several defensive stands and a nine-point run of their own to take back the lead and kept it until the end.

In the last half of the match, BYU continued to play well, but fell to the Utes three sets in a row.

The Cougars return to the Smith Fieldhouse next Tuesday, October 27, at 5 p.m. to take on the Utah Valley University Wolverines.
