Down 29-27, a passing error pulled Catawba within a point and a combo block by Heather Hawkins (Troutman, NC) and Elizabeth Hewitt (Hickory, NC) evened the match. Kills by Hewitt and Hawkins would fight off two more game points. Crystal Bonner (Yadkinville, NC) put the Lady Indians up 32-31 with a kill and after Crissi Harrison (Hickory, NC) gave Catawba a 33-32 edge, a Panther hitting error closed out the game.

Florida Tech would score the next two points to win the game. Catawba fell down 22-11 in the fourth game before trimming the deficit to 23-16, aided by a pair of kills each from Miller and Hawkins. Florida Tech would pull out a 30-21 win, then dominated the fifth game. Hawkins provided the first point for Catawba, but the Panthers then ran off 15 straight points to take the match. Miller led the way for Catawba with 22 kills, 21 digs and four aces. Hawkins added 14 kills, while Hewitt had 13 kills and three blocks. Schiedt posted 59 assists with six blocks.
