Queens jumped to a 9-4 lead in the opening set and controlled play the entire set. Consecutive aces by Lexie Dolecheck pushed the margin to 14-6. A kill from Tarvin made the score 23-11 and she would end the first set with another kill.

Catawba led most of the way in set two, using a 7-2 run to go up 19-14. Queens battled back and erased a 21-16 deficit to tie the set at 23-all. Two Catawba errors led to the final two points of the set.

The Royals started quick in set three and led early at 11-4 after a kill from Sydney Kunz. Catawba closed to 19-15 on an ace from Benton, but Queens ran off six of the final seven points and ended the match on a kill from Logan Witt.
