In the second set, Martin started by drilling three aces in a row.  Elizabethtown would tie at three-all before Hardin passed to Camille Campbell for the spectacular return. Camille would then hit an ace, giving the Devils a 5-4 lead. Hardin's five service points and return points from Sarah Johnson and Martin put the Blue Devils ahead, 13-10.
