“This was a fun match to play and a fun match to coach,” head coach Dave Rubio said. “Our players played hard and they went out there and tried to take something that they wanted. They finally pushed back.”

The Wildcats stepped up their performance in the third game with a sizzling .326 (17-3-43) hitting percentage for a 30-24 win.
