Sophomore outside hitter Haward Gomes had 14 kills and Cameron Fry blocked eight balls on Wednesday night as No. 6 SBCC upset No. 3 Fullerton 3-1. The scores were 25-19, 27-29, 25-20, 25-19.

The Vaqueros (4-0) won their fourth straight road match. Fullerton is 1-1.

"This is a great way to end a long string of road matches, beating the No. 3 ranked team in the state on their home court," said SBCC coach Jon Newton. "This team works well under pressure. We started the first set down 6-0 and forced Fullerton to call the first time-out when we went up 8-6. It's nice to have a team that can stay composed and win matches."

Gomes drilled 14 kills and hit .375. Blake Lockhart added 11 kills, six digs and four blocks. Misaki Cramer had 15 digs and Adam Simonetti handed out 35 assists.

The Vaqueros will make their home debut in two weeks on Wednesday, Feb. 21 vs. L.A. Trade Tech at 6 p.m.
