Moore Carries Titans to Sweep of Matadors
Oct. 11, 2008
Northridge, Calif. - Brittany Moore's aerial assault continued Saturday night as she blasted 21 kills and hit .356 as Cal State Fullerton swept Cal State Northridge, 3-0, in a Big West Conference match at The Matadome Saturday night.
The Titans boosted their record to 9-10 on the year and jumped to a game over .500 in league at 3-2. Northridge falls to 5-14 and remains winless in Big West action at 0-6.
The 25-23, 25-19, 25-19 was the first sweep to go in the Titans favor since Sept. 20 against Central Connecticut State.
Moore, the reigning conference Player of the Week, posted her third consecutive 20-plus kill match against the Matadors Saturday and collected nearly one half of the Titans' 43 kills on the night. The next closest Titan in the kill department was Erin Saddler with seven (.375) in 16 swings.
Fullerton out-hit Northridge .297 to .162 and did not hit less than .273 in any of the three matches. Val Kepler led the Matadors with a .438 attack percentage and tied for the team high in kills with nine, matching Siara Grayson.
In the blocking department, freshman Sydney McDowell led all players collecting her share of seven blocks (one solo), despite the Titans getting out-blocked 10.0 to 8.0. Kepler had six for the Matadors and Fullerton's Jennifer Edmond added four of her own.
The Titans come home after their perfect 3-0 road effort the past two weekends. They will host Bucknell in a 4.00 p.m. Sunday afternoon at Titan Gym.
