The visitors took the third set pulling ahead late to a five-point win at 25-20 and a 2-1 advantage in the match. The deciding fourth set saw the Trojans find their form going on to win the set and match, 25-13.

Senior Hayden Pate and sophomore Heaven Martinez led the Bobcats offensively with five kills each in the loss. Pate contributed six serving aces followed by Martinez with four. In the serve receiving department, Pate led as well at 36, with Maresa Lucero adding 19 receptions and Alyssa Saine 14. Martinez and Pate each had six digs on the day.
