Hawaii volleyball falls to Stanford again

  • TONY AVELAR / SPECIAL TO THE STAR-ADVERTISER

    Hawaii’s Stijn van Tilburg goes up for a block against Stanford’s Jordan Ewert during the first set of an NCAA volleyball match tonight in Stanford, Calif.

‘Iolani graduate Gabriel Vega, a junior opposite, put down 17 kills to lead No. 6 Stanford past No. 4 Hawaii 25-17 , 18-25, 28-26, 25-14 in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation volleyball match tonight in Stanford, Calif.

Junior hitter Kupono Fey had 17 kills for the Rainbow Warriors (9-4, 4-4 MPSF), who dropped their third straight and 10th in 11 matches at Stanford. Freshman opposite Stijn van Tilburg added 15 kills and senior hitter Siki Zarkovic overcame a slow start for 11 kills, his 13th straight contest this season with double-figure kills.

Hawaii continues its four-match road trip at USC on Monday and Tuesday.

The Warriors were down 6-1 in Set 3 but rallied to tie at 24 and 25. A kill by Zarkovic gave Hawaii a swing to end it, but Madison Hayden tied it with one of his 15 kills. The Cardinal (10-2, 8-2) closed it out on a kill by senior setter James Shaw and an ace by Hayden.

Stanford, which moved into a three-way tie with UCLA and Long Beach State for first place, got 14 digs from sophomore libero Evan Enriques, a Kamehameha-Hawaii graduate.
