Daniel Webster came back to tie the set at 9-all after a service error, however the Leopards took the lead for good on a block from junior Caroline Shea (Abington, Mass.) and senior Stephanie Nihan (Dracut, Mass.).

The Leopards scored the first three points of the second set and led 4-1 before the Eagles scored the next three points to tie the set when junior Rebecca Hoffman (Andover, Mass.) served an ace. Daniel Webster tied the score at 6-all on a block from Koehler and junior Nicole Beard (Shelton, Conn.) however a 6-3 spurt gave Wentworth a 12-9 lead after an attack error.

After a Hoffman kill and a Gendron ace made 12-10, Wentworth rolled off four straight points to make it 14-12 on a Carlson kill.
