Eugene, Ore. -- In front of a crowd of 2,196 fans at Matthew Knight Arena, no. 13 Oregon bested Oregon State in a sweep of three sets to improve to 10-1 on the year. The Beavers fall to 2-9.

The Ducks run started in the first set, as they rattled off an 11-1 sequence that gave them a 19-7 lead. Four service aces, two from Taylor Borup and another pair from Elise Ferreira, paced them to a 25-10 win in the first set. That continued into the second, as Oregon again went on a scoring run that gave them some cushion which led to a 25-15 victory and second set win. 

In the third, Oregon State dug out of two holes and managed to tie the score at 24. But a service error gave the edge to the Ducks and a service ace from Taylor Borup closed out the match in a clean sweep. 

Oregon heads to Arizona State while Oregon State flies to Tucson to see Arizona this coming weekend.
