The Cardinals responded by slamming down 21 kills to take a 25-20 win in the second set.
 
Both teams had an efficient attack in a back-and-forth third set, but Incarnate Word carved out a 28-26 win by taking advantage of four critical service errors in the momentum deciding set.
 
The Cardinals took an early lead in the fourth set and held on for the 25-22 clinching victory in the fourth set.
 
UIW was paced by Tina Chavis who put down 14 kills while Kelci Lind and Angelique Vidaurri posted 12 and 10 kills apiece.
