The Panthers used two first-half goals to take control of the game including a goal from Adam Jones just 18-minutes in to put them on the board. Edgar Bueno netted the team's second goal of the game. Greenville finishes the season 8-11 overall and 3-6 in the SLIAC.

Spalding volleyball wrapped up their 2017 season with a tri-match last Saturday.
