Florida Southern (13-10, 7-4 SSC) took five of the next seven points and a three-point lead at 7-4. The Mocs held the lead through 10-7, but went on a 15-3 run to close out the set with a 25-10 score. Southern’s Lauren Huber served the final seven service points for the win.

A Lisboa kill started the third set, but Florida Southern soon took a 6-2 lead off a 6-1 run. Down 7-4, Barry went on a 3-0 run, with the help of a kill apiece by Taylor Zirwas, Tania Torres, and Mariona Lisboa, to go down 7-6.
