Ashburn, VA (Nov. 3, 2015) – The Huskies travelled to Broad Run to face the Spartans in the Quarterfinals of the Conference 14 tournament. After beating the Spartans less than a week ago in an epic 5 set come from behind win, the Huskies had high hopes of extending their season. The Huskies and Spartans did not disappoint the fans with another epic battle that saw both teams leave it all on the court.
Both teams showed up to play and 25 points was not enough to win the first set as the Huskies and Spartans traded blows but in the end the Spartans pulled away with 27-29 victory. The second set saw the Spartans come out on fire against a slightly demoralized Husky squad and the Spartans cruised to a 16-25 victory. The Huskies looked to rally in the third set much like they did a week ago but the Spartan defense would not be broken holding on to a 23-25 third and final set victory.
