Falcons lose a thriller to Sierra, drop out of first place

The battle for first place in the Big Conference lived up to its billing, as Folsom Lake and Sierra went five sets on Friday night at Falcon Gym before the Wolverines could claim victory with a thrilling 18-16 win in the final set.  Despite the packed Falcon GymAs is their recent habit, the Falcons came out sluggish and lost the first two sets, 19-25 and 23-25, before regaining their familiar dominant form.  They shredded the Wolverines, 25-14 and 25-17 in the next two sets before falling in the heart-stopping 5th set.   The Falcons now find themselves at 11-2 in the Big 8, behind both Sierra and Delta at 12-1 with three matches to play, including one at Delta this Friday night.  Delta must play at Sierra once more as well, on November 14.
