In the second set the Panthers were led by strong serving from Lily Spicer who served 7 consecutive points to help stretch a Panther lead. Jessica Nihan played well at the night for the Panthers getting a key block and kill late in the set. Allie Spyropoulos had a solid turn at the setter position helping the team capitalize on opportunities to attack the Clipper defense. In the third and deciding set the Panthers were led out to a 13-0 lead thanks to strong serving by Allie Spyropoulos. Halle Julian and Jordyn Keith made key plays at the net to seal the Panther victory. The Panthers move to 6-3 on the season which is only one win away from equaling their win totals in the past two seasons. The Panthers head to Norwell on Tuesday for a rematch with the Clippers.
