TKU Eagles took on the Lakeland Rustlers back at home in the rematch of last night's game where the Eagles defeated the Rustlers in straight sets. In the first set, both teams looked evenly match as the set went back and forth. Eventually, the Eagles were able to take the set 28-26. The second set was the same story as the first, as both teams continued to battle in a very tightly contested game. But again the Eagles took the second set, 25-22. In third after a couple of rowdy fans were removed, the Rustlers looked to have gotten new energy and took the set, 25-12. In the fourth set, the Eagles regained their composure, as they took the set and match, 25-16.
