After the set became even 24-24, Parkside tallied the next two points to win, 26-24 to take a two set advantage.

The Pride led 14-12 midway through the final set, but the Rangers were able to go on a late run and win the third set, 25-20, to secure their victory.

Jenna Dal Santo led the Pride with 10 kills, Carissa Jones (Whiting, Ind./Bishop Noll) notched eight kills and Abigail Negri (Crown Point, Ind./Crown Point)recorded a double-double with 31 assists and 11 digs to headline the leaders for PNW.
