The Pirates cruised to a 25-21 win in the opener but couldn't long scoring runs in the second and third games.  In the second, Riverdale led 17-16 and 18-17 but the Pirates couldn't tie it up.  RHS scored the next six points off the serve of Bry Vanden Bosch and won the game 25-18. 

Tied at 7-7 in the third, Riverdale quickly distanced themselves out to a 19-8 advantage as the Pirates could not corral serves.  The Falcons took the third game 25-19.  The fourth game was again tightly contested tied at 10-10 and 12-12 and the Falcons went on to win 25-22.
