The teams traded the first four sets, with Meadowdale winning the fourth set by a decisive score of 25-13. But the Hawks bounced back and the fifth set was close all the way. The two teams battled to a score of 8-8 and Meadowdale took an 11-10 lead. But some clutch play by Kelly helped put it away for the Hawks out score the Mavs 5-0 to take the set and the match.
