A region win for the Falcons, now 11-3 on the season, over the St. Louis Community College Archers was just what the team needed midway through the season. ECC found themselves trailing after the first set and a resilient Falcon squad clawed their way back into the match by winning the next three sets for a final score of 13-25, 25-21, 25-20, 25-23. The key to the Falcons success lies in overall team defense providing the team second and third chances to score offensively.
