Pilipa’a controlled the tempo and shook off early nerves to take game one 25-22.  Epic 14-2 jumped out to an early lead in the second game with strong serving. Pilipa’a battled back, however they  fell short and lost the second game 22-25.  Pilipa’a started the third game a little slow, but  came from behind to claim the 3rd and deciding game 16-14.

Pilipa’a defeated Shenu VBC 14-1 of Phoenix (25-19, 25-17)in their second match of the morning. Pilipa’a controlled both games of the match with strong serving and hitting and superior defense.

Pilipa’a defeated Excel VBC of Southern California (25-14, 25-10) in their final match of the day.  Pilipa’a finishes the day 3-0 and seeded 12th out of 109 teams.  They will play their next match tomorrow morning at 8am (5am HST).
