  • Central would take an early two-point lead in the opening set before SFU would get even and the teams would trade points back-and-forth until the match was tied 12-12 following a kill by Lauren Milani. CCSU would go ahead 14-12 following consecutive attack errors by the Red Flash, but after a timeout, SFU tied the score again. The Red Flash would open a 19-15 lead following five straight points. CCSU would fight back to tie the set at 19-all before SFU took control with three straight points and later won the set, 25-21, following a kill.
  • CCSU took another early lead in the second set following four straight points. A kill by Nyjha Marcelin opened the streak and a skip set by Tori Boulay fell to put CCSU ahead, 7-3. The Red Flash would rally and eventually draw level at 12-12. The set was tied at 19-19 following a kill by Weronika Poczynek, but SFU would follow with four straight points to pull ahead, 23-19, enroute to going ahead in the match by two sets.
  • The Red Flash did not trail in the third set and would score four straight points midway through the set to build a six-point cushion. CCSU was unable to get closer the rest of the way as the Red Flash pushed the lead to as much as nine before closing out the match.
