After breezing through the first set 25-13, some unforced errors and inspired play from Lincoln gave the Lynx the set and tied the match at 1-1 with a 27-29 second set. But Parkland regrouped well and played clean yet aggressive the rest of the way with 25-6 and 25-11 wins in sets 3 and 4.
The pin hitters for Parkland made the offensive damage tonight with Fia Willis (22 kills), Eloise van Velthooven (21 digs) and Alivia Dew (10 kills) consistently keeping the Lincoln defense off-balance.
