Meghann Wright had a match-high 14 kills in just 21 attacks, and Rachel Stoklosa finished eight of her 11 swings in a 3-0 (25-13, 25-19 and 26-24) sweep of Saint Peter's Saturday in Jersey City. The Saints hit .350 for the match and won for the seventh time in eight conference competitions this fall.
Siena (8-10, 7-1) stormed out to a 6-1 lead in the first set behind Wright and Stoklosa's service and never looked back in a dominant 25-13 win. Saints Peter's (3-18, 1-7) hung tough in the second set, and trailed just 21-19 before libero Bobbi Lin Kalama served the Saints to the final four points and a 2-0 lead at intermission.
In the decisive third set, Siena mounted an improbable rally after trailing 24-18 behind Taylor Akana's serve. The Saints ended the match on an 8-0 run to stun the Peacocks 26-24 in the third set and claim the match.
Meredith Przybocki had seven kills and hit .417 to pace Saint Peter's attack. The Peacocks out-blocked the Saints 4-3, but managed just 19 digs on the match. Kalama ran her streak of match-high digs to seven consecutive matches.
Siena looks for its second 3-0 MAAC week of the season when it travels to face upstart Rider Sunday at 1 p.m.
