Hawaii lost a set for the first time since last April but dominated Loyola Chicago in a men’s volleyball game tonight at the SimpliFi Arena at the Stan Sheriff Center’s Loyola Chicago.

At a gathering of 2,131 people, preseason No. 1 and reigning national champions Rainbow Warriors improved to 2-0 with their second win over the No. 7 Ramblers in three nights to begin the 2022 campaign, 25-19, 25 -16, 18 -25, 25-14.

Chaz Galloway led UH with four of his team high 12 kills in the first set. In the second, Galloway had six more kills, and Guilherme Voss slammed a Loyola flyover home to shut them out.

Loyola took a 2-1 lead in the third set and never stayed behind.

The Warriors bounced back in the fourth set with a boost from Spyros Chakas who hadn’t played in the first three sets. He contributed three kills, an ace and a block before Voss ended it with his ninth kill of a clean match.

Dimitrios Mouchlias made 11 kills for Hawaii.

The Ramblers’ Parker Van Buren was match high at 14, Colton Brooks was 11 and Cole Schlothauer added 10.

Before losing in the third game, UH had won eleven straight sets since last year when it defeated UC Santa Barbara in the national semifinals and BYU in the final.

It was another hot service game for the Warriors’ Jakob Telle, who scored three aces after the top six of his career in Wednesday’s win.
