Barry will play Armstrong Atlantic (28-1) at 9 a.m. ET Saturday for the title. The Bucs beat the Pirates 5-4 in February. Armstrong has knocked Barry out of the NCAA tournament the past two years, having beaten the Bucs in the quarterfinals last season.

In Friday's semifinal match, Barry's Emma Onila and Linda Fritschken carved out an 8-3 win against Lorena Gheorghe and Magdalena Smejova at No. 2 doubles for the Bucs' first win. HPU's Vivian Hansen and Lea Kruse-Utermann beat Karina Goia and Blanka Szavay 8-4 at No. 3 doubles to tie the match at 1-1.

Barry's duo of Kimmy Twelker and Ana Pain sent the Buccaneers into singles with a 2-1 lead after defeating Karen Ramirez and Celina Goetti 8-4 at the top flight.

Onila led 6-1, 2-0 when her opponent, Ramirez, retired at the No. 1 spot. That put Barry ahead 3-1.

Barry's Elisabeth Abanda won her team-leading 19th match of the season, beating Hansen 6-4, 6-1 at No. 5 singles. Goia won her first singles match since April 5 6-4, 6-2 versus Goetti to send the Bucs to the championship. Goia had not finished a postseason singles match this year.
