With TJ Saures and Anthony Deleon Guerrero pulling off some offensives, the GCA Eagles took the lead halfway to the end of the final set.

Earlier in the game, the Eagles and the Knights took turns in taking the lead.

 San Nicolas and Andrei Chavez helped the Knights keep pace until the Eagles swept them with seven possessions in a row.

Kimy Kim delivered with powerful overhead serves while Saures handled the team with several game-setting bumps allowing Anthony to attack and nail the Knights to a seven points.

A couple of miscommunications allowed the Knights to inch their way closer but Kim scored two points in a row to widen the gap again.

Anthony’s final spike completed the Eagles’ 15-10 victory.

The GCA Eagles beat the Knights in the first set, 25-21 with Kim’s six aces in a row but the Knights retaliated by routing the Eagles in the second set, 25-17.
