Dordt won sets one and two 25-19 and 25-21 to take control of the match. The Pioneers responded with a 26-24 win in set three to avoid the sweep but the Defenders proved to be too much as they took a 25-20 win in set four over the Heart of America Conference member.

"It was a great team effort led by our two setters Jessica De Stigter and Kayla Gesink. They continue to work with our hitters while creating a balanced offensive attack," said Dordt College head coach Chad Hanson. "It's a joy to see us maturing in the little areas of the game like communication."
