The Marlins picked up a point on a miss by St. Mary's, but then gave up four straight to the Angels. Destin came within two points of St. Mary's on a couple of serves from Cara Phillips. But two was as close as the Marlins would come. St. Mary's took the win 25-17.

In set two, the score was tied six times before St. Mary's went on a 12-point scoring spree to take the win 25-13.
