CHESNUT HILL, Mass. -Sophomore Jazmen Russell led Wake Forest on Sunday with a career-high 20 kills as the Demon Deacons defeated Boston College 3-1 (28-26, 20-25, 25-13, 25-21).
Wake Forest went up early in the first set 9-3 which included a 4-0 run behind the serving of Heather Kraft. Boston College eventually fought back in the set and pushed it to a 26-26 score, but after an attack error from the Eagles and a service ace from Beck, the Demon Deacons won 28-26.
BC controlled the second set and won 25-20 without relinquishing the lead throughout the frame. The third set began close between the two teams, but Wake Forest began to pull away with a 8-0 run that included several Eagles hitting errors. Kraft finished off the set with a service ace as the Deacs won 25-13 to go up 2-1.
Both teams played close again in the fourth set until Wake Forest took a 9-8 lead after a kill from Russell. Fittingly, with the Deacs leading 24-21, Russell buried a kill as the Demon Deacons won their second road ACC match of the season.
Courtney Castle had 15 kills to lead Boston College (10-17, 4-11 ACC) while Katty Workman had 11 in the match.
