Leyden d. Maine West: Junior middle hitter Carly O'Kray and junior outside hitter Kelly Murphy each had 9 kills to lead Leyden to the 25-18, 25-13 nonconference victory.
Maine West (4-16, 1-5) was led on attack by Ashley Collins and Maddie Plantz, who each had 4 kills while Brittany Collin added 2.
"Our passing was good, but we made too many hitting errors again," said West coach Randy Tiller. "Thirteen kills on 60 swings doesn't get the job done or the match won. Leyden was strong with their outside hitters. We didn't put up the block that we needed. We'll learn from this match and get ready for Niles North (today at 6 p.m.)."
