POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - Despite career-highs in kills from Mackenzie Stephens (Holland, Mich.) and Becca Jones (Arlington, Va.) as well as a triple-double from Hanna Stoiberg (Thousand Oaks, Calif.), the Marist volleyball team fell to Canisius 3-1 (25-23, 25-14, 22-25, 25-19) at McCann Arena Saturday afternoon. It was the first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) match of the season for both teams.

Stoiberg finished with team-highs of 13 kills and 11 digs to go along with 20 assists for her second straight triple-double, and third overall this season. Stephens reached double digits in kills for the first time in her career, finishing with 11 while hitting at a .500 clip and adding four blocks. Jones had five kills and nine digs, tripling her previous career-high, while making her first career start. Katie Estes (Saugus, Calif.) had nine kills in just two sets and freshmen Kelsey Lahey (Bowling Green, Ohio) and Courtney Shaw (Centennial, Co.) each had seven kills. Gena Russo (Rensselaer, N.Y.) had 10 digs and Brooke Zywick (Garden City, Mich.) added nine. Audra Brady (Allentown, Pa.) had a team-high 27 assists.

The Red Foxes (4-7, 0-1 MAAC) started off well, taking an early 6-3 lead in the first set on two kills apiece from Stoiberg and Marisa Gilbert (Pflugerville, Texas) and a block by Stephens and Jones. Canisius (4-7, 1-0 MAAC) came right back however with 5-1 run to take an 8-7 lead. The two teams would trade points before the Golden Griffins used three straight points to jump ahead 17-14. Marist battled back to tie the score at 22 on two kills by Stephens and one each from Stoiberg, Lahey and Shaw as well as a block from Shaw and Gilbert. Canisius responded, however, with a 3-1 run to put the set away 25-23. Stoiberg and Stephens led the way in the set for Marist with five kills each while Brady had 10 assists.

The Golden Griffins carried that momentum from the end of the first set into the second, taking command early with a 10-5 lead despite three kills from Jones and one each by Lahey and Stoiberg. The Red Foxes pulled back to within two at 13-11 thanks to two kills from Shaw, one each by Stephens and Jones and another block combination from Shaw and Stephens. The Golden Griffins would go on an 8-1 run from there however, including seven straight points, to take a 20-12 advantage before Stoiberg ended the streak with a kill. Kills by Gilbert and Shaw were not enough to mount a comeback as Canisius took the second set 25-14. Jones had four kills and four digs in the frame.

Estes came off the bench for the Red Foxes in the third set and provided a big spark, throwing down six kills to lead the way. Marist jumped out to an early 8-3 lead on kills by Estes, Stoiberg, Gilbert, Lahey and Shaw as well as a service ace from Russo. After Canisius pulled to within three at 9-6, the Red Foxes responded with a 5-1 run, including three straight kills by Estes to open up a 13-7 advantage. The Golden Griffins again closed the gap, this time to one at 18-17, another kill by Stephens and a Brady ace, sandwiched between two Canisius errors, brought the lead back up to five at 22-17. Kills by Stephens, Estes and Stoiberg eventually closed out the set, 25-22 in Marist's favor.

Marist again took an early lead in the fourth set, this time at 6-2 on an ace and kill by Stoiberg and single kills from Stephens, Estes and Shaw. However, Canisius would score six of the next seven points to leapfrog into the lead at 8-7. With the score tied at 10, the Golden Griffins went on their second large run of the set, outscoring Marist 8-2 for an 18-12 lead. They would maintain that six-point lead the rest of the way, despite three kills from Lahey and two by Stoiberg, to take the final set 25-19.

The Red Foxes are right back at it on Sunday with another MAAC match as Niagara, the three-time defending MAAC champions, visits McCann Arena at 2 p.m. The match will be broadcast live on The Red Fox Network.
