Peifer Leads Duke Over Virginia in Three Games
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Duke utilized 16 kills from Sarah Peifer to defeat Virginia, 3-0, in a Atlantic Coast Conference match played at Memorial Gymnasium. Virginia (13-9, 2-4 ACC) again featured a balanced attack which was led by Shannon Wahlers (Phoenix, Ariz./Independence), who finished with nine kills. The Cavaliers completed the three-match weekend, all within the Atlantic Coast Conference, with a 1-2 record.
Virginia jumped out to leads of 6-0 and 7-1 in games one and two, but Peifer rallied the Blue Devils. Much of the ground gained on the Cavaliers came with Peifer toeing the service line. Although she only finished with two service aces, UVa continually had trouble controlling Peifer's difficult serve. Duke (7-11, 3-3 ACC) also received 14 kills from Megan Irvine. Irvine committed just one hitting error in 21 attempts to finish the match with a .619 hitting percentage. Kristen Campbell quarterbacked the Blue Devil offense and finished with 41 assists.
In addition to Wahlers and her nine kills, UVa received eight kills from Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville), and 24 assists from Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep). Scott also chipped in with three service aces in the loss.
UVa returns to action next weekend when they travel south to take on Clemson (Friday, October 17-7:00 pm) and Georgia Tech (Saturday, October 18-7:00 pm). Virginia's next home match is scheduled for October 28, when in-state rival Virginia Tech visits Memorial Gym (7:00 pm).
