But in the fourth set, the Crusaders regained control of the match, which they ended up winning, 3-1. Set scores were 25-23, 27-25, 21-25, 25-17.
The loss snapped a three-match winning streak for the Gophers, who once again dropped below .500.
Even in defeat, Sarah Johnson (Ridgewood, N.J./Ridgewood) reached a milestone, becoming only thie third player in the history of Goucher's volleyball program to reach 2,500 assists during her career. An assist she was awarded on a kill by Michelle Tweedie (Accra, Ghana/Lincoln Community School) on the 16th point for the Gophers in the fifth set was her 42nd of the match and raised her career total to exactly 2,500.
