The NU duo would rally to force La Salle to give up two straights points to take the set, 22-20, and force a third set. It was La Salle’s turn to dominate once more, as the eagle-eyed La Sallian finished the set with a 15-9 victory, finding the right touches to get their spikes to cut through the taller NU’s blockade.
