A Mason handling error forced set point at 24-18 and the Patriots called timeout. George Mason was able to fend off four straight set points before an attack error won the set for Duquesne 25-22.

Duquesne fell behind 5-0 in the 2nd set and called a time out.

A Patriots attack error gave Duquesne a 10-point lead at 19-9 and a kill by Davet won the set 25-11.

The Dukes jumped out to a quick 13-2 lead in the 3rd set. Maintaining the lead at 20-11, Mason would score seven of the next eight points to cut the deficit to 21-18. But kills by Davet and Nora Young along with a Patriots hitting error made it set point at 24-18. Young ended the match with a kill, giving Duquesne a 25-19 set win and a 3-0 match victory.
