With the exception of blocking, GW had the upper hand every other phase of the match including some pinpoint serving resulting in 10 aces, all which came against two Stags.
Fairfield (0-3) was led by Laurie Brand's 14 kills and 11 digs. The Stags opened their season with losses to Georgetown and Cincinnati as well as the Colonials in the two-day Patriot Invitational.
