The game began with the teams staying close to each other, and as Drew Donahoo scored the Tillers fifth point, Cavalry followed closely behind. However, Tustin began to open the scoring with a streak in the middle of the set. Jonathan Flores, the libero, had numerous aces in the first set. Tustin never relented and won the first set 25-19.
In the second set, Luis Adame opened the Tillers’ scoring drive. Sophomore Eric Baker scored Tustin’s eleventh point with an impressive spike past the Eagles’ blockers. Shortly after, Freshman Chris Landis managed to bring in the 14th point of the game with a clean hit. Adame then closed the set, and the match 25-19 with an excellent spike. It was a valiant effort from the Eagles, but Tustin was, as we’ve come to know: superior on the court.
