Two kills from Campbellsville’s Maria Coelho helped them knot the score at eight, and again at nine before the squad posted five consecutive points including two kills from Worrell and two errors on the Tigers giving them a five point advantage, 14-9.

The Tigers then scored four points in a row to cut their deficit to just one, before Worrell would post two more kills. A point from Lerno would put the Phoenix on top 18-15 but a service error on Cumberland and another kill from Coelho had the squad lead by one, 19-18.
