LOS ANGELES - The 12th-ranked UC San Diego women's volleyball team suffered a 3-1 defeat at Cal State Los Angeles Friday evening. Scores from The Eagle's Nest were 25-18, 25-20, 24-26 and 29-27.

With its second straight loss, UCSD dropped to 24-5 overall and 16-5 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA). CSULA, which swept the season series, improved to 16-13 and 11-10. The Tritons slipped into third place in the CCAA behind league champion Cal State San Bernardino (20-1) and Sonoma State (17-4).

Four UCSD players recorded double-doubles, including Caitlin Brenton (16 kills, 11 digs), Sophie Rowe (14 kills, 27 digs), Danielle Dahle (11 kills, 10 digs) and Heidi Sierks (48 assists, 17 digs). The 27 digs for Rowe were a career-high. Kameron Cooper had five blocks (one solo).

The Golden Eagles were led by Iona Lofrano, who totaled a match-high 21 kills while adding 18 digs. April Reyes led all players with 30 digs.

Cal State L.A. held a .243 (69-19-206) to .213 (61-21-188) advantage in hitting percentage. The Tritons out-blocked the Golden Eagles 10-8 and both squads amassed 100 digs in the match. CSULA had seven service aces.

The fourth set featured 13 tie scores and seven lead changes. A kill by Brenton gave UCSD a 27-26 lead, but the Golden Eagles closed out the match with three straight points on kills by Bethanee Boggs and Kymberly Silveyra and an attack error by the Tritons.

Cal State L.A. downed UCSD in five sets at RIMAC Arena on Oct. 19.

UCSD plays its final regular season match Saturday, hosting Cal State Dominguez Hills at 7 p.m. at RIMAC Arena. Four Tritons - Lizzy Andrews, Rachelle Kinney, Brittany Lombardi and Sara McCutchan - will be recognized prior to the start of the Senior Night match. UCSD students are admitted free.
