The Vikings took games one and two, 30-26 and 30-23. The Eagles then came back to win game three, 32-30. But, PSU was just too much for Eastern, as the Eagles fell in a must-win game four, 30-24.
The Eagles (7-4, 0-2), were 7-2 in the pre-season going into conference play, but lost their opening two matches in the Big Sky on the road and have lost three in a row.
Addie Webster led the Eagles with 14 kills, followed by Kerri Beck with 11. For the second straight match, senior leader Brittney Page was held to just ten kills. Mandy Daniels led the team in digs with 20.
Eastern again was held to a low hitting percentage, only .254 for the match. The Vikings however, did not hit any better at .240.
