On the evening of Friday, Nov. 4, the Urban Knights came to Biola swinging and held the Eagles to just 52 points on the night, while Academy of Art scored 75 points to win. During the matchup, Biola never led in the first or third sets. They did briefly lead in the second set, but their lead never surpassed a two point advantage. 


Oddly enough, the last time these two teams met the result was a sweep as well, but with the Eagles as victor. The Eagles will conclude the regular season with a 1-1 record against the Urban Knights after playing two lopsided matches. The Urban Knights sit at a 6-20 record after this match, compared to Biola’s 15-10 record. 

While the first and third sets were not close, Biola kept the second set relatively close. Their largest lead came on a kill by senior outside hitter, Madison Beebe, who led the team with seven kills on the night. Biola kept the score close for a bit until the Urban Knights pulled ahead and cemented their lead. 

Up next, Biola looks to bounce back on senior night, when Point Loma comes to town on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. Stats from the match can be found on the Biola Athletics website.
