No. 12 Bristol Central breezed through the first set while the No. 21 Greyhounds held the lad through most of the second set as the teams were deadlocked through two.

The third set was also competitive as Naugy held several leads but a 7-1 Bristol Central run closed out the set and gave the Rams a 2-1 advantage.
