"We were right there with them in Game 1 and they rattled off some good plays," CdM Coach Steve Conti said. "We had them, 24-23, in the second game and then we had a missed serve and two hitting errors. We're not making plays at crunch time when it matters.
"We're pretty similar. They can send in a lot of different guys like us. But they are more consistent. They were able to make the plays down the stretch. That last game was such a disparity because we let that second game slip away from us.
