How It Happened
-The Shorewomen never trailed in the first set on their way to a 14-point victory.  Leading 11-6, WC won 14 of the final 19 points to take the set.  A service ace by Lee ended the set.
-Ursinus jumped out to an 18-13 lead in the second set on a kill by Allison Raff before Washington went on a 9-3 run to take a 22-21 lead on an attack error by the Bears.  However the Bears would win four of the final five points of the set to win by two points.  A Raff kill clinched the set for Ursinus.
-Down 3-0 to Ursinus in the third set, Washington went on a 14-4 run to take a 14-7 lead on an assisted block by Alexis Jordan and Alaina Geissberger.  Ursinus won the next four points to cut the lead to 14-11 on a Kathryn Yoo ace, but Washington responded with an 11-4 run to end the set.  Lee ended the third on a kill.
-The Shorewomen led 17-12 before the Bears rolled off five straight points to tie the fourth set at 17-17 on an attack error by Washington.  The Shorewomen would close the set and match with an 8-3 run to win by five.  The hosts were beneficiaries of six attack errors by the guests in the set and match closing run.  Two of the six attack miscues were due to blocks by the Shorewomen.
