Tied at 24-all, Bryanna Miller knocked down a kill before Miller combined with Elizabeth Zelber for a block for a 26-24 win.
• The second set featured five ties early before Courtney Westman served six straight points to open up a 16-11 lead. After McDaniel closed to 17-16 on a Mills kill, the Blue Jays closed the set on an 8-1 run for a 25-17 victory.
• Three straight Shatto aces keyed a 6-0 start to the third set. McDaniel closed to within 8-5 but Elizabethtown held off the rally and went on for a 25-15 win.
