Kansas Wesleyan won the next two sets 25-13, 26-24 to even the match at 2-2.

Hilta Pereira chipped in nine kills and four blocks.

Kylie Penning finished with 34 assists and four blocks.
Emily Brown had 13 digs and Helena Lukovic had seven digs.
“We are continuing to make strides in some areas we have been lacking in like blocking and finishing offensively. However, our ability to work as a team has been struggling this past week or two affecting our trust and confidence on the court. We were able to come out with the win in this case, and I am proud of the girls for sticking to it and putting in the effort to finish on top,” Cloud County coach Molly Skocny said.
