The Breakers went in front, 8-7, when senior outside hitter Marina Paul's shot went off Hodson. The teams were tied one last time at 10 and the Breakers took the lead for keeps on a kill by Wallace-Ford. Another kill by Wallace-Ford, who had a match-high 31 kills, put the Breakers on top, 20-13. They secured a 25-17 victory when Arizona State-bound setter Allison Palmer dropped a soft tap for the winner.
The teams were also tied at 10 in the fourth game before the Sea Kings rode a right-side shot and two kills by senior middle blocker Britton Taylor to a 15-12 advantage. The Breakers served twice into the net to allow the Sea Kings to maintain three-point leads at 16-13 and 17-14, and a kill by Watson widened the lead to 19-15. The Sea Kings capped a 3-1 victory on a drop shot by Kennedy.
"Allison (Palmer) left every ounce of her soul on the court," Stewart said. "I thought Caroline (Holte) had some good swings in the middle and Alyse (Wallace-Ford) was pretty dynamic at the net."
