Union thought it had won the first set, but the clinching point had to be replayed when the officials could not come to a consensus on whether or not a hit attempt by Redbank Valley’s Alivia Huffman was tipped by a Union player before going out.
Instead, the Bulldogs rallied for the first set victory and then won the next two to claim the match.
Huffman had six kills for Redbank.
