CANYON, TX (KAUZ) -

West Texas A&M erupted for a trio of second half goals in a 15-minute span to snap Midwestern State's four-match win streak in a 3-0 victory Friday night at The Pitch.

After a scoreless first half where the Mustangs were held without a shot, West Texas A&M's (5-2-4, 3-0-3 LSC) Jessica Diaz propelled the Lady Buffs to a 1-0 lead with a strike from the top of the box in the 62nd minute.

A failed clearance by Midwestern State (8-3, 3-2 LSC) in the 70th minute led to a goal by Noir Hawash to lift WT to a 2-0 advantage. The Lady Buffs capped off the scoring just six minutes later with Hannah Kelley delivering a shot into the back of the net for a 3-0 final.

Brandy Villasana recorded MSU's first shot on target of the night at the 52:18 mark as the Mustangs matched a season-low two shots on goal in six attempts.

With the win, West Texas A&M moved to first in the Lone Star Conference standings with a 3-0-3 record for 12 points. Angelo State suffered its first conference loss in a 3-0 defeat at Texas A&M-Commerce to drop to second in the standings with 10 points, while MSU and TAMUC follow closely in third with nine points each.

Midwestern State looks to return to its winning ways Sunday as the Mustangs take on Eastern New Mexico in a 2 p.m. (CT) kickoff at Greyhound Stadium in Portales, N.M.

MSU volleyball swept at #16 Angelo State

Midwestern State was held to its second lowest hitting percentage of the season at .053 Friday night in a 3-0 defeat to No. 16 Angelo State at the Junell Center.
 
Tulani Titley powered Angelo State (12-4, 4-3 LSC) to a 25-19 first set victory with a team-high four kills as the Rambelles hit .344 as a team in the opening frame. The Mustangs hung close to ASU for a majority of the set, trimming a six-point deficit in half following a kill from Meghan Bettis to pull Midwestern State (8-8, 3-5 LSC) within three at 21-18. However, ASU scored the final three points of the game to take a 1-0 lead in the match.
 
Brianna Sotello and Morgan Seaton combined for nine of ASU's 14 kills in the second set while limiting the Mustangs to a .026 attacking clip in a 25-19 decision. After trailing by five midway through the game, the Mustangs inched back to within a point following a 4-1 run. The Rambelles stretched their lead back out at 20-15 to force an MSU timeout before claiming the final three points once again for a 2-0 advantage.
 
Sotello's six kills paced the Rambelles to a Friday sweep with a 25-16 third set win. The Mustangs offense suffered in the third set, being held to a .024 hitting percentage. ASU pulled away early in the set behind the serve of Sotello before recording its largest lead on the final point with Micheala Sifuentes finishing off the match with a kill for ASU.

Midwestern State returns to the court tomorrow for a meeting with No. 15 Tarleton State at Wisdom Gym in Stephenville. First serve is scheduled for 2 p.m.
