They kept the pressure on throughout the set and closed it out 25-17. The Dons traded points with the Cougars early in the third set before going on a serving run to lead 11-7. Campo closed the gap to 11-10 before the Dons regained their stride and hammered the Cougars the rest of the way to win the match 15-11 in front of a sea of Acalanes fans! With this key rivalry win, the Dons remain undefeated and move to 4-0 on the season.
