Sherene Clegg contributed two blocks, setter Tilley Gibeaut added two blocks, eight digs and five assists, Jordan Briggs had five digs, and Jamie Dodge had three digs. Kassidy Lommori led the Lions with six kills and two blocks.
The night before, rival Incline handed the Lakers a loss in three sets, 25-18, 25-13, 25-17.
Taylor Briggs led North Tahoe with eight kills, two blocks and 11 digs, while Jordan Briggs had three kills, two service aces and four digs, and Goodwin had two kills and two aces. Gibeaut contributed 11 assists, two aces and seven digs, Dodge had four digs, and Rikki Partain had two assists.
