Tougaloo, MS-The Tougaloo College Lady Bulldogs' Volleyball team hosted the Lady Rams of the University of Mobile here tonight in the Dawg Pound.  The Lady Bulldogs dropped a 3-0 (25-17, 25-13, 26-16) decision to the Lady Rams to drop to 9-6 on the season.

After coming off two conference wins last week, the Lady Bulldogs were looking to start this week of games off with a big win over the University of Mobile.  Well, the Lady Rams had a different agenda for the Lady Bulldogs, as they were looking to down the Lady Bulldogs in the Dawg Pound.  The first set would start out pretty good for the Lady Bulldogs, but somewhere in the middle, the Lady Rams would take off and never look back, taking the set 25-17.  In sets two and three, the Lady Bulldogs would try to bounce back, but the Lady Rams would prove to be too much for the Lady Bulldogs, defeating them in straight sets.

Dayane Souza paced the way for the Lady Bulldogs with 9 kills and 9 digs.  Jana Williams tacked in 5 kills and 9 digs and Briana Murphy chipped in 5 kills.  Mariana Candelot added 18 assists for the Lady Bulldogs.  The Lady Bulldogs will be back in action on Thursday as they host Edward Waters College in conference play here at the Dawg Pound.  Game time is set for 7:00 P.M.
