BEAUMONT — Lamar volleyball showed its ability in the second set and late in the fourth, but front-runner Texas A&M-Corpus Christi showed why it’s in first place when it downed the Cardinals 3-1 (16-25, 25-20, 12-25, 23-25) in Southland Conference action Thursday night at McDonald Gym.
The loss puts Lamar in need of a win Saturday against Incarnate Word – which fell in five at Houston Baptist – or a loss from Southeastern Louisiana at New Orleans to advance to the Southland Conference tournament for the first time since 2011.
The second set featured three lead changes and nine ties between the Lamar (6-21, 6-9 Southland) and Corpus Christi (19-7, 15-0).
