-The Owls raced out to a 14-9 lead in the second set on a Washington attack error and led 17-14 following a kill by Rachel Ofili.  For Ofili it was her program leading 1,018th career kill for Bryn Mawr.  Washington would take its first lead since it was 1-0 at 20-19 on an attack error by the guests.  The Shorewomen clinched the three-point second set win on a kill by Daunoras.
