Wabash would dominate game one, jumping out to an 11-5 lead off and ace from Sam Irgang and kills from Brooke Irgang and Alivia Short. Alissa Pershing would the get a kill and the Knights got a block from Drue Gentry to make it 7-5. ASgain it would be Short and the Irgangs controlling the net as the Apaches built their lead to 19-12 before Erin Lehner recorded one of her three kills in the game. At 21-14 Short would record two kills with Brooke Irgang serving an ace to give Wabash a 25-14 win.

In game two Wabash would go to Sam Irgang and Angela Levine early, while the Knights got kills from Pershing and Lehner to make it 7-7. The two teams battle for position as Wabash led 16-14 when Mckenzie Hayslett scored on a tip to ignite a 4-0 run and a 20-14 lead. The Knights wouldn’t go away, getting two tips from Pershing and a kill from Gentry to make it 22-19 before the Apaches went on to take game two 25-21.

Game three looked as though it would be much of the same with the score tied 4-4 when an explosion hit in the name of Alissa Pershing . Pershing would collect 5 kills and a block as the Knights score 9 straight to take a 13-4 lead before two Wabash points. At 13-6 Pershing would go again, this time getting assistance from Gentry aces as the lead grew to 21-6. At 24-10 the Apaches would flex their muscle a little, getting kills from Brooke Irgang and Tabitha Wagner to score 6 straight before the Knights ended the game on a Kirsten Pecsenye kill for a 25-16 Southwood win.

Maybe having a bit of a let down in game three the Apaches came out inspired in game four, getting two kills from Wagner and jumped out to a 5-0 lead. The Knights would claw their way back and had the Wabash lead cut to 12-10 when the Apaches opened a gap. Taking advantage of a couple Knight miscues and getting timely serving from Sam Irgang the Apacges scored 6 straight to go up 18-10.
