The Blue Raiders extended their lead to 19-10, however Freed-Hardeman rallied and went on an 11-3 run to bring the first set to 23-21.

The third set was a different tone as Freed-Hardeman lead early 10-4. The Blue Raiders cut into the deficit on kills by Valdez, Elizabeth Moore, and Logan Seagraves. However, the Lady Lions responded with a 9-0 scoring run that gave them a commanding lead and they grabbed the third set 25-13. Freed-Hardeman recorded 11 aces in the third set.

The final set was tied at 5-5 when Lindsey Wilson scored the next four points to get a small lead. A pair of kills by Alcantara pushed Lindsey Wilson's lead 12-6.
