After winning the first two sets, the Bulldogs dropped the next two to force a fifth.
The scores of the match were 25-18, 25-20, 23-25, 13-25 and 15-13.
In the second set, Yale used a 16-6 run, capped by an ace from Kate Swanson, to take a 23-18 lead. Swanson led the Bulldogs with 24 digs.
The third set slipped away from the Bulldogs. Steinberg smashed a kill to give the Bulldogs a 23-22 lead before the Big Green scored the next three points.
