After trading side outs several times, the Chargers were able to pull off a 27-25 victory. The momentum clearly stayed with the hosts in set two as they cruised to a 25-18 win.

In set three, the Lincoln climbed back into the match by doing a better job of controlling the ball off serve receive and were able to win the set 25-20. The victory helped the Lady Lynx regain their confidence, and they roared past Sandburg 25-15 in set four to force a deciding set to 15. In that set Lincoln took an early lead and never trailed on their way to 15-12 win.

Lincoln's record improved to 13-11 on the year.

LC coach Mark Tippett commented:

"Our team has shown a great deal of heart this season, and no match showed it more clearly than this one. It is a very difficult feat to pull off a comeback like the one they did this evening against a team as talented as Carl Sandburg. The win is especially sweet since we lost to them in four sets earlier in the season. I am extremely proud of the way we played this evening and look forward to seeing how much this group can continue to improve."

Lincoln College is off for fall break weekend and will be back in action Wednesday with a triangular set of matches at Lincoln Christian University, beginning at 3 p.m.
