In the first match of the afternoon, Caroline Waite and Erin Eisenhart scored the Govs first points with a win over the Colonels in the No. 5 pairing. MiMi Arrington and Claire Darland then gave the Govs  2-0 lead with a win in the No. 4 matchup.

Leading 2-0, Jenna Panning and Brooke Moore picked up their team-best fourth win of the season and scored the match-clinching point with a win over Eastern Kentucky in the No. 1 pairing.

With the match decided, the Colonels picked up a point in the No. 3 paring, but Morgan Rutledge and Tegan Seyring put the first match of the day on ice with a win in the No. 2 pairing.

Later in the day, the Governors suited back up for a match against Chattanooga. Waite and Eisenhart kept it going with another win in the No. 5 pairing to start the match. Then Arrington and Darland had the same mindset, battling to win in three sets and give the Govs a 2-0 advantage. But the Mocs fought back, winning the No. 2 and No. 3 pairings to tie the match, before picking up a win in the No. 1 pairing to knock off the Governors, 3-2.

The Governors will be back in action at the Jacksonville State beach event when they play a pair of Sunday matches against Morehead State, 10:00am, and Jacksonville State, 6:00pm.
