Edison also never trailed in the third game, although seven serving errors kept the game interesting. The last tie came at 3-3, as the Chargers slowly built leads of 14-10, 18-14 and their biggest, 22-17, on a kill by Darin. But Redondo fought back to make the score 24-23. Following a final time out by the Chargers, Pestolesi delivered the match-clinching blow with a kill to wrap up the title.
"I can't say enough how great the team played," Boone said. "We had great contributions from everybody. Tim and Tommy on the outside, Kenny Webster's passing. Everyone was just terrific.
"This is a fantastic feeling, but I'm stunned. We played our best against the No. 1-ranked team. It's such a satisfying feeling to play at the level we did tonight, when it counted most. Tonight was the Chargers' turn."
