The Green Terror won the opening set 25-16 before the Blue Jays tied the match with a 25-23 win in the second set. McDaniel took the third set, 26-24.

• Sarah Schneider added 16 kills and 17 digs.
• Aiyana Tietze-DiToro led the defense with 27 digs.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• A Marlowe Embry kill tied the first set at 8-all and sparked a 6-1 run that put McDaniel on top 14-9 en route to the 25-16 victory.
• An Aiyana Tietze-DiToro ace capped a 3-0 start to the second set for Elizabethtown. The lead would swell to 8-4 before the Green Terror netted five of the next six points to even the set at 9-all. After nine more ties, a service error gave the Blue Jays a 23-22 edge. Embry knocked down a kill to make it 24-23 but a Mackenzie Garner kill evened the match.
• Elizabethtown once again tallied the first three points of the third set before an Emma Lorenzen (Hagerstown, Md./South Hagerstown) kill and Allie Lugar ace gave McDaniel a 14-13 edge. In a set that once again featured 10 ties and five lead changes, Embry and Isabel Paci (Ellicott City, Md./River Hill) put away the set with back-to-back kills for a 26-24 win.
• In the fourth set, there were 18 ties and eight lead changes with neither team leading by more than three points during the set. Tied at 26-all, Sarah Schneider and Embry traded kills before Schneider and Kelli Garriott sent the match to a fifth set.
• A Gayle Edelstein ace, two kills from Lugar and an Embry knocked down allowed the Green Terror to jump out to a 4-1 lead in the fifth set. The Blue Jays countered with five of the next seven points to tie the affair at 6-all. The teams then traded points until back-to-back Schneider kills won it for Elizabethtown.

THE INSIDE STORY
• The 23 kills were a career high for Marlowe Embry. It was her second 20-kill, 10-dig performance of the season.
