It appeared as if the Greyhounds would establish some momentum and pull away. St. Mary's took advantage of some Cathedral mistakes getting as close as 13-12 late in the set. Both teams had a long volley with Cathedral getting the point. A Knight player kept the match alive with a soft tip over the net. A Greyhound made solid contact with the volleyball for a strong kill to seal the win. St. Mary's won the fourth set by taking advantage of some Cathedral mistakes. There were eight ties during the set with the Knights earning the set on two out-of-bounds hits by a Greyhound. The third set was mostly even with neither squad leading by more than 4 points. Cathedral was able to take the set when a Greyhound blocked the ball at the net. Cathedral bounced back in the second set as it was able to regain some momentum and win it when a St. Mary's player hit the ball out of bounds. Things looked look for St. Mary's in the first set with the Knights jumping out to an early 15-5 advantage. The Knights were able to win when a Cathedral player knocked the ball into the net, a Greyhound miscue and a kill by a St. Mary's player earned the winning point in the set.
