The match, held in front of an enthusiastic crowd, was a true testament to the team's potential and their determination to improve. From the first serve, it was evident that the Tigers were ready to take on the challenge of competing against a top team in the district. Their raw energy and enthusiasm electrified the court, and they quickly established an impressive lead in the first set. The Lions and Tigers battled back and forth ending the first set with the Lions on top 24-26. Sets 2 and 3 followed suit and the Tigers lost the match in three sets to the Lions.
