THIEF RIVER FALLS — The Central Lakes College Raiders fell in three sets to Northland in a division matchup on Wednesday.

Alanna Hansen had eight kills and Abbi Knutson 27 set assists for the Raiders.  


Northland took game one. CLC had an opportunity to win the second game, but they couldn’t close it out on game point and lost 26-24. The Pioneers finished off the evening with a 25-16 win in the third game. 

“It was a missed opportunity,” head coach Jane Peterson said. “We had game point and couldn’t win and that has happened before. We are trying to figure out how to win games that we should win.”
