This one stings a bit.

Medaille College volleyball frittered away three match points Saturday, eventually falling in a five-set thriller in its home finale.

Despite another stellar performance from Coupeville grad Chelsea Prescott, the Mavericks were toppled 25-20, 13-25, 13-25, 31-29, 15-11 by visiting Mount Aloysius College.

The loss drops Medaille to 1-5 in Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference play, 4-15 overall.

Mount Aloysius improves to 3-3, 4-14.

After dropping the opening set, Medaille roared back to dominate the second and third frames, and held a 24-21 lead in the fourth.

Then, things slipped away from the Mavericks.

Even after being unable to close out the fourth set, Medaille had its chances in the final frame.

In the race to garner 15 points, the Mavericks led at 7-3 and 10-8, with the final tie at 11-11.

Starting and playing all five sets, Prescott hammered nine kills, doled out two assists, zipped four aces on her serve, recorded a block assist, and went low for a team-high 19 digs.

Her 13.5 points of offense was third-best on the day.

Prescott has played in all 62 of her team’s sets as a freshman, ringing up 104 kills, 154 digs, 22 aces, 12 assists, two solo blocks, 10 block assists, and 133 points.

Medaille wraps up the regular season with road trips to Penn State-Behrend Oct. 26 and the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg Oct. 30.
