Scores

How it Happened

  • The teams exchanged leads for most of the first set until Sara Hassell sparked a rally to break a 16-16 tie with a kill. It started an 8-1 run, which featured two Taylor Burton kills. Burton closed the set out with another kill for Illinois Tech’s 25th point.
  • There were a lot of similarities between the first and second set. Both teams traded advantages to start, and Hassell once again started a big run (this time 9-1) to put Illinois Tech ahead. The Scarlet Hawks built a 17-10 advantage and Burton and Hassell scored the set’s final two points with kills.
  • In set three, the Hawks rattled off eight straight points after Moody scored once to start. Illinois Tech cruised to a match victory, never in danger of losing the big lead.
