The strong serving of Grace Brown led the Lions to a 5-0 advantage in the first set. After Bainville moved ahead, the Lions responded with a kill by G. Brown for a 14-12 lead.
Bainville took a 19-16 advantage, but Lustre kept the heat on with a kill by Alexa Reddig. A serve by Reddig pulled the Lions to 20-19. The Bulldogs tallied the last five points of the set.
In the second set, Bainville gained a 20-15 advantage but Lustre fought back on a kill by Jaden Gibson.
The Lions kept battling but fell by a 25-18 final.
