Leading 16-15, Coker began to move away late in the opening set. A kill by Alexis Berles and two from Annie Mansfield started a 5-0 run that upped the lead to 21-15. Catawba closed within 23-19 before an error and a combo block from du Bray and Bethany Prochnow ended the set.

The second was back-and-forth until another 5-0 run pushed Coker to the set win. Tied at 19-all, Bingle had a kill and a block then another block after a Catawba error. Prochnow’s kill ended the set.

Catawba dominated the third set, leading 5-0 and 12-3 after a kill from Brooks. Coker made it 21-15 after an ace from Bingle, but Allie Grubb and Brooks had kills to help end the set.

Coker ran out to a 7-2 lead to start set four. Du Bray had two kills and block. The Cobras went up 21-12 after a block from Berles and 23-14 following an ace from Overhold. Catawba staged a late rally after the ace, reeling off six straight points to make it 23-20. Hurtado had two kills and a block. An error pushed Coker to match point and Christen Bragg put it away with a kill.
