Ottawa came out slow and fell behind 12-0 in the first set.
“It is a huge challenge to overcome that large of a deficit,” Ottawa coach Laura Jeannin. “We went on runs throughout the match, but was never able to get the momentum on our side until the third set.
“We made some big plays in the third set that gave us the momentum to take the match to a fourth set. We fought hard in the fourth set, but we were not able to take control of the match.”
