After recording the program's first victory in its history last week, the Brookfield volleyball team has now lost a consecutive pair after falling in straight sets to Penney at home on Tuesday night.
The first set was a back-and-forth affair, although the Bulldogs never had a lead. After falling behind 10-4, the 'Dogs rallied back to knot the set up at 16 points apiece before falling 25-20.
In the second set, Penney assembled too many streaks for the Bulldogs to overcome. Brookfield took an early 11-4 deficit after conceding seven straight points, and 12-8 is the closest it would ever get to its opponent en route to a 25-12 second-set loss.
Penney is a young program, only a few years older than Brookfield's. Tuesday night marked just the seventh match the Hornets have won since their program's inception in 2011.
Brookfield falls to 1-9, and plays again at Father Tolton on Thursday.
