Bruinius, Davenport career nights give Buffs fourth straight win

Samantha Bruinius and Jessica Davenport could have done a lot more damage if the match had gone more than three sets. Led by 15 kills from Bruinius and 39 assists from Davenport, the Milligan College volleyball team cruised to another three-set victory, defeating Bluefield College 3-0 (25-21, 25-23, 26-24) Tuesday evening at Steve Lacy Fieldhouse.

Milligan (15-10, 10-4 AAC) won its fourth straight match, third straight by a sweep and fifth in a row at home. The Buffs also completed the season sweep of Bluefield (10-13, 6-10 AAC) after winning in five on the road earlier this year.

The previous match went five sets and featured a match point for Bluefield which Milligan denied as part of its closing 3-0 run. Tuesday night at home, the Buffs again played their best during the big points and even denied the Lady Rams a set point in the third.
