The visitors fell behind in every game but refused to back down. In the end, ALC would come back to win in four sets.

The hosts would then jump ahead quickly in set 2, only to see history repeat itself as Alice Lloyd battled back once more to win 25-17. The third game was a blowout early as Appalachian Bible exploded ahead 11-1. However, they were forced to withstand a furious rally from the Lady Eagles before finally prevailing, 25-23. Game 4 was a broken record for the Caney Creek club as they were forced to play from behind once again. Fortunately, they would come all the way back to close out the match, 25-21.
