Carrollton, Ga. – September 21, 2005 – It was a tall order to try to go in and break North Alabama’s 92-match winning streak against Gulf South Conference opponents in Flowers Hall. The streak continues, as the Lions beat West Georgia 3-0 Tuesday night.

In the second game, West Georgia played better on the defensive end, forcing six Lion errors. But the Braves committed eight errors as well, falling 30-19.
The Braves came out playing much better in the third game, taking the lead at 25-24. But the UNA hitting power was just too much, as the Lions finished off the match 30-27.
Carolin Schoeneck had a solid night, connecting on 12 kills with no errors for a 52 percent average. The Braves return home Friday night against West Florida at 7 p.m.
