The Pioneers dominated the match early on. After winning the first set by 13 points, they held a 15-5 lead early in the second set before the Eagles called timeout and regrouped. Southern Door then closed out the second set, the only one it won, by outscoring Sevastopol, 20-8.

The rest of the match remained competitive with the Pioneers winning the final two sets by two points each and needing more than 25 points in the fourth set to avoid going to a fifth and deciding set.
