The second set was a back and forth affair between the Wildcats and Ravens. The Wildcats held a 14-13 lead, but the Ravens then went on a run and won the set 25-23 without relinquishing the lead again.

The Wildcats came out with the lead in the third set as they led 12-6 early in the set. The Wildcats controlled most of the third set as they led 21-18 later in the set. The Ravens then went on a 7-1 run and won the set 25-22 to win the match 3-0.
