ANKENY, Iowa--Even delaying the game couldn't stop the Eagles on Saturday night.
The Faith Baptist Bible College Eagles hosted the Dayspring Bible College Eagles on Saturday, October 13. The game was scheduled to begin earlier in the day, but vehicle troubles for Dayspring delayed the start time of the game by several hours. Faith won the match in three sets with scores of 25-15, 25-16, and 25-17.
Faith came out strong and played tenaciously in every set in Saturday's matchup. Although the teams tied a few times early in the second set, Faith never allowed Dayspring to lead except at the very beginning of the first set. After winning the first set by ten at 25-15, Faith continued to play well and beat Dayspring 25-16 in the second set and 25-17 in the third. Faith Baptist and Dayspring are scheduled to play each other again next Saturday, October 20, on Dayspring's home court in Lake Zurich, Illinois.
The Faith Baptist Eagles will return to action against Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Friday, October 19, starting at 7 p.m.
