Austin Peay State University (9-18, 7-6 OVC) battled back from a 2-0 deficit with its steady offensive outing posting 15 and 17 kills in the third and fourth sets, respectively. Meanwhile, the host Redhawks offense ran into trouble at the same time, posting just nine kills in each set.

Southeast Missouri (19-8, 11-2 OVC) took control of the tie-breaking fifth set with a pair of blocks right before the changeover, leading 8-5 as the teams switched side.
