But the Storm game back and with the set tied at 21-21 the hosts ran off four straight points to take a 2-0 match lead.
Set three saw NCU take a 10-5 lead but Crown came back to eventually tie the match at 13-13. The teams would keep things close for the rest of the match including an 18-18 tie before the Storm got another 25-21 victory.
