In the second game, Sieminski had four service points and Alexus Bonner had five service points for the Patriots. Washington broke away from a 22-22 tie to win the game.
Lea Cook had important points in the third game with her serving. Alycia Lambert’s serves helped the Patriots extend a slender lead near the middle of the game.
