The third set went in favor to Lourdes University 25-23.  After an early lead by the Gray Wolves, Cornerstone slowly chipped away at the score.  With the score even at 23 Stephanie Richards put Lourdes ahead by one and then took the set on the next point.

Cornerstone bounced back taking a commanding 25-16 fourth and final set of the match.  The Golden Eagles began to pull away from their opponents after a strong 13-5 run midway through the set to give them the 23-14 advantage.  After an error on Lourdes' Sam Dibert and a kill by Megan Newhouse, Cornerstone took the set and match.
