The Barnum Bombers hosted the Cardinals of Cromwell-Wright on the 3rd of October. It would end up to be a long night as the Bombers and Cardinals both played with a number of long volleys.

The first set would see the Cardinals take the lead and force the Bombers to play catch up. The Bombers struggled with hitting errors which set them back. The Cardinals would take the first set 25-17.

The second set would see the Bombers regroup and start to hit and dig better, but the Cardinals would also put up some good numbers. It became a back and forth battle to the end. The Bombers would come away with the second set victory to even up the night at 1 set apiece.

The third set looked as though the Cardinals were having communication difficulties as the Bombers took the early lead and never looked back. Hitting errors would see the Cardinals drop the third set to the Bombers 25-13.

The Cardinals would find their rhythm again in the fourth set and dominate the Bombers. The Bombers on the other hand looked as they just couldn't get it together and would fall to the Cardinals 25-7.
