Concordia bolted out of the gates in the opening game and looked like they would get a lopsided win  to start the match. The Scots were able to rebound late in the opener and took a 24-23 lead but then watched as CC scored five of the next seven points to come away with the win.

The second game was all Concordia as they carried the momentum over from game 1 and posted a 25-13 win. In game No.3, Macalester got on top early and then traded points with the Cobbers in order to post the 25-22 win. CC then returned to their even-game excellence in the fourth game when they refused to let the Scots get any rallies and captured the 25-12 win.
