2016 CCAA Mens Volleyball Game 1 Recap camosun

(4) Camosun College-Chargers vs. (5) Mohawk College-Mountaineers

The second match-up of the day showcased two powerhouse teams fighting to move forward in the tournament. Both teams came out of the gates swinging, however, only the Chargers could keep up with the pace that was set early.

They swamped Mohawk’s side of the court with pinpoint accurate kills and dismantled their offence, finishing the opening set, 25-13. The second was much better for the Mountaineers as they were able to slow down the rampaging Chargers. But Camosun’s momentum was too much for the struggling Mohawk squad, and they dropped the second set, allowing Camosun to take it, 25-18.With their backs against the wall, Mohawk College made what could have been their final stand. The Mountaineers piled point upon point against the Chargers, making their climb that much harder. Despite the difficulty of the challenge set in front of them, Camosun prevailed. They broke free of the Mohawk’s iron-tight grasp and sealed their victory with a beautiful finish, taking the set 25-20, and the game 3-0.

Camosun’s Savana Walkingbear was named his team’s Player of the Game. Eric Girard earned the same honors for the Mountaineers.
