For Belhaven, Taylor Williams led with 17 kills and Morgan Hofacker added 15 kills.
The Blazers out hit Mobile .089 to .054 for the game and finished with a 6-3 edge in service aces.
Belhaven led 24-22 in the 4th set, but Mobile got back-to-back kills from Kolassiba to stave off elimination. After trading points, a Van Wert kill and a Belhaven error gave Mobile the set and tied the match at 2-2.
The final set was close early, as a Nations kill brought Mobile within 10-9, but the Blazers took the next two to take a three-point lead. Up 12-10, back-to-back Blazer kills gave the Blazers a 14-10 lead, and Mobile could not bounce back.
