Hornets sting Brahmas in home opener

The Brahmas were brought down from their high after defeating San Diego Miramar College Friday evening when they faced the Fullerton College Hornets Wednesday night.

Pierce lead two sets (25-17, 25-23) before the Hornets took control of the game, winning the next three sets (25-23, 29-27, 15-13) and the game in the Brahmas home opener.

Cole Chea led the Brahmas in kills with 17, one more than Jayson Moore.

Head Coach Lance Walker said the team’s mentality after the second set played a role in their performance, which led to their defeat.

“I think that we started to turn on each other. We started to play as individuals. We started to point fingers and that was the difference,” Walker said. “One play made the entire difference. They won by one play.”

Walker said the loss was a learning experience for the team and said his players should be motivated to stay focused on upcoming games throughout the season.

“Forget about this game, but learn from it. Next game is a different opponent and different group of guys,” Walker said.

The Brahmas’ face Golden West College on Friday, Feb. 2 at 6 p.m., on Ken Stanley Court.
