Brevard and Pensacola Christian (15-15) played a tight first set with BC ultimately falling 25-22. After dropping the second set 25-16, the third set proved to be a very tight affair.
Late in the third set and facing match point, Gordon set up Raley Shirey who delivered a kill on a beautiful assist to tie the match 24-24. However, Pensacola Christian scored the final two points of the third set to take the set 26-24 and the match 3-0.
In the match vs. Pensacola Christian, Gordon registered 28 assists. Lloyd was again a versatile factor both offensively and defensively worth seven kills and 13 digs. Hannah Jenkins delivered seven kills and Rodriguez recorded 12 digs.
