SCHWERINER SC caused some troubles to the home side in set 2, especially in defense, with Gilda Lombardo replacing Francesca Marcon; Kozuch, Arrighetti and Bauer were the ones that did determine the fate in the end with their attacks and blocks (25-21).  
In the third set SCHWERINER SC stepped up the quality of their play going up 16:12 especially via the attacks killed by Steenbergen and Anja Brandt. Maren Brinker and Kozuch attempted a late comeback for the home side but it was too late (18-25). Bauer and Marcon paced Yamamay in the fourth set thereby calling for the golden set to determine the team making it to the Playoffs 6.
