Volleyball beat Georgia Southern 3-1 on Tuesday, behind senior middle blocker Morgan Van Alstine.

Van Alstine led the team in kills with a career-high of 15. Teammates Carrine Turner, Katarina Raicevic and Gabby O’Connell also had double-figure kills.

Van Alstine’s kill after a timeout sparked a charge, as the Ospreys took the lead and won the set 25-20.

In the fourth set, UNF’s dominance was evident once again. UNF held a 15-12 lead before making a 7-1 run for the match win.

The Ospreys face Georgia Tech today at 11:00 am.

 

Men’s Soccer

The Osprey’s undefeated streak ended on Thursday, after a 1-0 loss to USF.

In the first half, UNF couldn’t convert shots, despite shooting four shots on goal. UNF only allowed USF to have one shot on goal, and at the break the score was deadlocked 0-0.

The stalemate was broken in the second half, when USF scored a goal in the 55th minute.

UNF ended the game with a 14-4 shot advantage, but couldn’t capitalize on good opportunities.

Next the Ospreys will face No.8 Denver on Sept. 17.
