The Tigers continued to dominate early in the third set as the Rams were rendered defenseless against Turner-Kipke’s aces. More kills were on the way from both Foord and Brown but the Rams fought back to tie the game 19-19. It was a nailbiter as the Rams pushed their way to a 31-29 win in the third set.
