With no break in between the games, the Commodores had to turn right back around to face the number-eight seed Nassau. The match was in favor of the Commodores the entire time as LCCC won 25-19, 25-9, and 25-12.

In the fifth-place game on Saturday, the Commodores faced off against #3 Central Lake and it went down to the final play. The Commodores won the match in five 18-25, 25-19, 25-20, 15-25, 15-13.
