We played a lot more aggressively in the third and fourth games and that was good to see," said Bronco head coach Jon Wallace. "We served the ball really tough. Maybe not in the first game, but the rest of the match we served really well."
"Megan played really well again. It's nice to see Lexi, Kayla and Kat play well offensively as well. I thought both setters played really well," said Wallace.
