The Lions (10-11, 4-3 NEAC) fell behind by as many as eight points in the opening set before battling back and cutting the deficit to one in the closing moments thanks to three consecutive kills from Brittany Ebaugh off assists from Alyssa Snyder.

The Blue & White faced another early deficit in the third set but used a late 6-to-3 run capped by an Ebaugh solo block to stay alive but that's as close as the Lions would get.
