CU Stings UU, Takes Control of G-MAC
CEDARVILLE, Ohio (October 30, 2012) - On Tuesday night at home, the Cedarville University Yellow Jackets captured a key G-MAC matchup with Urbana University. The Yellow Jackets swept the Blue Knights 25-11, 25-22, 25-16 to fend off their closest competitor in the conference standings. The loss is the second of the season in conference play for the 4-2 Blue Knights. Both defeats came at the hands of the Yellow Jackets, who improve to 26-5 overall and a perfect 5-0 in conference play. Cedarville can clinch the regular season championship and right to host the G-MAC tournament next week with a victory against winless Central State on Friday night.
