    Pepperdine came out solid in the first set, pulling ahead 10-5 with a strong opening service output from Robert Mullahey including back-to-back block efforts from David Wieczorek and Max Chamberlain. The Waves continued to roll against the Eagles, stringing together kills from Harriman and Harthaller and aces from each Harriman and Spencer Wickens to secure the first set 25-17 win.

    In the second set, the Waves and Eagles were more evenly matched to open. The opposition busted out to a 7-2 lead, but the Waves countered with kills from Michael Wexter and an ace from Harthaller to tie things up at 9’s. After a few back-and-forth options, the Waves were looking at an even 19-19 tie in the final moments of the set. Wieczorek pounded out four kills, including the final kill of the set to give the Waves a 2-0 advantage on top of the 25-23 set win.

    After more tied scores throughout the third set, including 9-9, 17-17 and 22-22 marks, the opposition pulled ahead. Concordia-Irvine battled through a match-point opportunity to tie the set at 24’s and worked off the momentum to secure a 26-24 win and force a fourth set.

    Pepperdine was ready to close the match as the Waves entered the fourth, however, and after another 10-10 tie in the middle of the set bounced ahead. Kills from Harriman and a block collaboration from Harthaller, Wexter and Mullahey propelled the Waves to a 19-15 lead late in the action. Kills from Wieczorek and Harthaller gave the Waves the advantage and another match-point opportunity and Harriman did the deed as a final smash from him earned a 25-21 set victory the 3-1 MPSF win for Pepperdine.
