Gettysburg 3 Washington College 1 (25-16, 25-22, 18-25, 25-13)

How It Happened
- Washington took a 14-12 lead in the first set following a kill by Isabella Sansanelli before Gettysburg closed out the set on a 13-2 run.  An attack error gave the Bullets the lead for the rest of the set at 15-14 and an attack miscue by the Shorewomen clinched the nine-point win for the hosts. 
- The Shorewomen scored six straight points to take a 12-10 lead on a Sansanelli kill and led to a timeout by the Bullets.  However, Gettysburg responded with an 8-1 run to take an 18-13 lead after a hitting miscue by Washington.  Trailing 23-18, the Shorewomen won four of the next five points to trim the lead to 24-22 on a Lizzie Baden finisher, but a ball handling error by WC on the next point ended the set.
- In the third set, Washington stayed alive with a seven-point win.  The Shorewomen jumped out to a 17-11 lead on a Baden kill that capped a 13-7 run.  The set was clinched following a hitting error by Gettysburg.  The Shorewomen hit .257 in the set with 13 kills.
