Portland Loses to Washington

Portland tried to keep it close in game one, but Washington proved too much and swept Portland, 25-19, 25-18, 25-12. A kill by Shelly Seivers (Kentlake 2006) brought the Pilots to within one in the first game at 18-17, but Washington went on a 5-1 run to close out the game. The third game was close until 12-11, but then UW's Airial Salvo served 11 in a row to put the contest out of reach. Portland closes the tournament with a rematch against Montana State this evening. MSU beat Portland 3-1 yesterday.
