FORT COLLINS -- The BYU women's volleyball team played another tough road match Thursday night, falling 27-30, 29-31, 28-30 at No. 21 Colorado State in the Cougars' 12th road contest of the year. The loss drops BYU to 13-6 overall and 5-4 in the Mountain West Conference while the Rams improve to 13-5 on the year with an 8-1 league mark.

"We didn't take care of the details tonight," said BYU head coach Jason Watson. "We definitely had our chances, but we didn't take care of details and Colorado State did. They put pressure on us, and we didn't respond."

Senior outside hitter Chelsea Goodman was the bright spot for the Cougars as she posted 20 kills and 16 digs, setting the MWC record for career double-doubles at 48. It was the fourth time this season she has tallied at least 20 winners. Senior Erica Lott also recorded double-digit kills with 12 while senior Annie Pinegar contributed 12 digs. Sophomore Ashton Hansen led BYU with five blocks on the night. Four Rams put down double-digit kills led by Mekana Barnes with 13.

After an early 3-2 lead for the home team in game one, BYU scored three straight with kills from Lott and Bryn Porter to go up 5-3. CSU answered with a 5-1 spurt to regain the advantage at 8-6 before Rachel Dyer put down back-to-back kills to tie it up. From there, the game was a battle as ties and lead changes came fast and furious. Finally, after trailing by one at 20-19, the Rams put together an 8-3 run to take a 27-23 lead and force a BYU timeout. The Cougars managed to cut the lead to two out of the break, but CSU pushed through for the 30-27 win. BYU hit just .082 in the game despite six kills and seven digs from Goodman.

BYU stormed out to an early 7-3 lead in game two only to see the Rams fight back with five straight scores to go up 8-7. Lott ended the scoring run with a kill down the line, and another battle was brewing. With BYU up 19-17, Goodman made history with a kill down the line, giving her 10 kills and 12 digs for the match, her MWC-record 48th career double-double. However, CSU refused to surrender as the Rams made a late push with a 5-1 run to regain the lead at 26-25. Goodman kept the Cougars in the fight to the finish with three more kills to knot the score at 29-29, but it was the Rams who scored the next two to take the game 31-29.

The two teams traded points to start game three as neither squad was able to put together back-to-back scores. CSU finally did it in a big way with a 4-0 run to go up 12-9. Porter stopped the bleeding with a cross-court winner, but BYU found itself on the wrong side of the score in a must-win game. However, the Rams were feeling generous as they sent three balls long to give the lead back to BYU at 14-13. From there, the Cougars were able to maintain a slim edge until a 4-0 CSU spurt brought the score to 22-19 in favor of the Rams, which soon turned into match point at 29-25. BYU staved off the match-ender for three points until an errant Cougar serve sealed the CSU win at 30-28.

Two home matches now await the Cougars as they take on Air Force and Wyoming next weekend in the Smith Fieldhouse. BYU swept both teams on the road earlier this season.
