EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE volleyball dominated the blocking statistics Friday, but Austin Peay collected 48 kills for a 25-23, 25-21, 25-14 win over the Cougars at the Vadalabene Center.
Brooke Moore powered the Governors' offense with 15 kills. Kaylee Taff added 10 kills. The Governors hit .280 as a team as it improved to an OVC-leading record of 13-2 with a 24-4 mark overall.
"Set one and two we were able to come back after a few hiccups to start," said SIUE Head Coach Kendall Paulus. "We'd get a little bit of rhythm but never took advantage of it."
"They're (Austin Peay) a good team. They just found a steady spot and were able to maintain it," said Paulus.
SIUE returns to action Saturday at 2 p.m. for its regular season finale at the Vadalabene Center. The Cougars entertain Murray State.
