DASGS Team One was in a no-nonsense mood wrapping up the first set quickly, 25-12. The Division of Technical and Vocational Education bounced back to square things with a 25-20 second set win, but it was all DASGS Team One from there onward as they took the next two sets 25-20, 25- 13.

The Division of Arts, Sciences and General Studies Team Two, who needed all of five sets to dismiss the St. James School of Medicine took the third spot. St James School of Medicine won the first set 26-24, before DASGS Team Two stormed back to level the game with a 25-9 second set win. St. James took the lead once again with another exciting 25-23 third set victory, only to see the match level once more as the DASGS Two took the fourth set 25-22.

With all to play for and the crowd fully into the encounter, both teams were neck and neck in the final set until DASGS Team Two squeezed home with a 15-13 fifth set win, and the third place finish.
