Loyola led for much of the first set, going up 20-18 on a Jane Lukas kill before Mountain Hawks kills by Stephanie Slater and Jade Van Streepen tied the score.
A Greyhounds attack error and another Van Streepen kill made it 23-21 Lehigh, but a Mountain Hawks service error got Loyola back within a point, 23-22.
