In the second set, Windom opened up a 4-1 lead, then ripped off eight straight points to eventually build the lead to 16-6. LCWM closed to within 18-5, but a trio of kills by Sornesen, a tip kill by Miki Bolin and two kills by Hanefeld gave Windom a 25-18 win.

But in the third set, LCWM battled back. After an ace serve by Jasmine Carlson gave Windom an 11-8 lead, LCWM went on a run, building a 21-16 lead before eventually closing out the set on an Eagle hitting error at 25-20.

The Knights then started the fourth set fast, racing to a 6-1 lead early and building the lead as high as 13-5. Windom was able to close to within 17-15, but an ace serve, a kill and a hitting error gave the Knights a 25-18 win and forced a fifth set.
