The Bengals started match two where they left off, hitting on all strides offensively and manhandling the Owl frontline, taking game one without much opposition 25-9. Game two saw the Owls gather their bearing and compete at a higher level. Leslie Theriault was inserted into the lineup and provided some additional blocking and an offensive presence that brought the Owls closer, dropping the game 25-13.
In game three the Owls again showed their collective talons, scraping and clawing back to make the game exciting. The upgraded effort saw 5 Owls with multiple kills and a much better team effort in a game, but losing performance 25-19.
McCorkle had 12 assists and Nolen tallied a match-high 7 kills for UMFK. Swan had 5 assists, Patenaude a team-high 3 kills and Sophomore Abby Jewett had 2 kills and 8 digs for Presque Isle.
UMFK moves to 16-3 on the season and the 0-15 Owls will attempt to garner their first victory of the season at a tri-match hosted by UMaine-Machias on Saturday, October 4th.
