The Eagles took the first game 25-15 and the second 25-21.
Green Valley shot out to a 16-9 lead, but Parkway regrouped and started to rally. The Patriots went on a 9-1 run and claimed an 18-17 lead.
Green Valley's Taylor Walker took over the game by serving back-to-back aces to give the Eagles a 22-19 lead. Walker served two more aces to put the Eagles in front 24-20 before Parkway got the ball back.
An error by the Patriots gave Green Valley the final point it needed to win the match.
