Sayre CC La Ballena added its second victory of the course by beating Kiele (3-1). The locals, who fell in an even first set (21-25), rebuilt. They came back from 1-7 at the start of the second heat and, when the visiting team only lacked one point to make it 0-2 (19-24), they came up to score the set 27-25 (1-1 ).
This was a morale boost for the Sayre. He went on to win the third set by eight points (15-7), but ended up suffering from the subsequent reaction of Kiele, who could not prevent the locals from winning it 25-23. The fourth round was more placid for the locals: 25-19 and a valuable victory.
