Plock hit .360 in the loss as Bradley prevailed by set scores of 25-18, 27-25, 25-23.Bradley (12-11, 8-4 MVC) was led by Hannah Thompson’s 12 kills and eight kills plus seven blocks from Sara Maddox.Drake (9-18, 3-11 MVC) committed 11 errors in the first set but regrouped and committed just 11 total miscues the remainder of the evening to keep pace with Bradley.The Bulldogs looked poised to tie the match in the second set with a seven-point lead late in the set. However, Bradley fought off two set points and closed the set on a 15-6 run to take the set and a 2-0 lead in the match.Drake played very even with Bradley in the third set, but Bradley was able to get enough separation late to preserve the four-set win and end the Bulldogs’ evening early.Drake aims to rebound from the loss Saturday when they make the short trip to Illinois State for a 5 p.m. match.
