The MIT Men’s Volleyball team emerged with a 25-23, 25-18, 25-17 victory over division rivals Endicott College on Tuesday night. The nationally-ranked No. 7 Engineers raised their record to 11-2 for the year and 7-0 in conference play. MIT scored the first three points of the match and later held an 8-4 lead. Endicott countered with a 6-1 spurt which put it in front for a majority of the frame. Five ties ensued until a strike by Kenneth M. Siebert ’14 ended a long rally to give the Engineers a 21-20 edge. A kill from William B. Evans ’14 increased the margin, which prompted a timeout from the Gulls. After the break, both sides traded points, and another Siebert blast closed the set. Endicott jumped out to a 6-3 advantage in the second game, but MIT responded with a 9-3 run to pull ahead. The Gulls capitalized on several miscues by the Engineers, tying the set at 13. An Endicott service error followed by an ace from Siebert gave MIT some breathing room. However, both squads exchanged serves as a kill from Endicott’s Jeremy Siden brought the Gulls within one point. MIT countered by registering an 8-2 run to wrap up the set.
