In the second game, the team was scoring on every mis-service and had a lead of 12-3 when Hancock tied it 12-12. Kelly scored one on an ace, going three of three. Jessica went six of six with four points, Lindsey went six of six with five points and four aces, Mindee Lovgren went four of five with four aces, and Samantha Strege was five for five with an ace in the last game.
