The Lobos started to get lazy by making careless mistakes that is when the Sand Devils would Caplize. The third set belonged to the Sand Devils as they defeated the Lobos 25-21.

Entering the fourth set the Lobos were able just one set away from spoiling the Sand Devils home opener. Snowflake broke their team huddle to start the fourth set with a chant “1, 2, 3, finish this Lobos”.

There were some powerful plays in the fourth set that gave the Sand Devils life but, with net violations by the Sand Devils helped the Lobos pull ahead for the win.
