HOW IT HAPPENED

Siena jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead at the start of the first game and would never allow the score to be tied on the way to a 25-20 decision.

The second set was taken by the Cardinals as they built an early 11-4 lead and survived a late Saint rally to hold on for the 25-22 win to tie the match at one game each.

The score remained close throughout the majority of set three but Siena would use a 6-0 run to take a 21-15 lead and eventually the game to put the score at 2-1 in favor of SHU.

The Saints put the match away in the fourth by building a double-digit lead early to a 25-12 advantage.
