Coming out in the first set, the Bucs went on a roll and even after a late push by the Tetons, the visitors pulled away and won 25-18. The second set the Bucs kept up the same pace to take a 2-0 lead with a 25-11 victory. After the intermission, the Tetons were not ready to give in quite yet and took a set off the Bucs with a 19-25 win.
