The final 10 points featured three kills and a set-ending ace from Kennedy and two more kills and an ace from Harrell.
Brownwood fell behind 2-0 in the second set, then scored 12 of the next 14 points to seize control.
Harrell tallied two kills during the scoring spurt and one each came from Geye and Hall, while the rest of the points were the result of Snyder miscues.
Jalisa Hall served an ace to push the advantage to 16-8, and the lead reached double digits, 21-11, on yet another Snyder error.
The set ended with a kill from Harrell.
After the two teams split the first four points of the final set, Brownwood went on a 9-0 run to put the game out of reach.
