The team started to put together a run of their own but ended up coming up short in the second set with Colby tieing up the match at one set apiece, 25-20.

The adjustments made by the team paid off with the Lady Saints taking care of business in the third set 25-18 and closing it out with a convincing 25-14 victory.
