They could not get any momentum and fell 30-23. They picked up the pace in game three and were rewarded with a 30-25 win and a 2-1 lead in the match. In game four the Foresters jumped out to a 9-3 lead, but then Michigan Dearborn turned the tables with a 16-2 run and eventually put HU away 30-22 to even the match. Game five was never close as the Foresters committed 12 unforced errors in the 15-8 loss.

Amy Wilson was a machine at the net with 21 kills in the match. Kayley Cervenka had team-leading three blocks. Hanson dished out 28 assists and Stearns kept HU in the match with her 22 digs.
