Peacock, Central pick up league wins after solid showing in girls volleyball tournament

High school boys and girls league action continues as playoffs near
Fresh off a solid showing in the Moose Jaw high school girls invitational volleyball tournament, the Peacock Toilers and Central Cyclones were right back in league action on Tuesday night.

Both teams were able to pick up pretty much where they left off, picking up victories to remain at the top of the league standings.

The Toilers found themselves in a bit of a battle in their match-up with the Vanier Spirits, dropping a set in local competition for the first time this season before going on to a 3-1 (25-13, 25-11, 19-25, 25-17) victory. 

Central, meanwhile, rolled to a 3-0 (25-18, 25-18, 25-12) win over the Briercrest Christian Academy Cougars, with a make-up game scheduled for later in the evening postponed.

Over the weekend, both Peacock and Central were able to reach the playoff round in the 15-team tournament, as the Toilers qualified through the second round robin as the sixth seed and Central landed eighth overall.

That sent both teams into the quarter-final, where Peacock defeated Regina Riffel in their match-up before falling to Estevan in a barnburner to close out their showing. Central lost their quarter-final in three games to the Kipling Magyars. 

Balgonie Greenall went on to defeat Estevan in the gold medal game.

Vanier was also in action but missing the playoffs.

Only one game was on tap in high school boys league play on Tuesday, and it was predictably another barnerburner between two of the league’s top teams in the Central Cyclones and Cornerstone Christian School Falcons. Cornerstone remained unbeaten on the season with a 3-1 (18-25, 33-31, 25-20, 25-23) victory.

Only two league nights remain before the first round of the playoffs, with the next round of action taking place on Thursday night.

That will include Briercrest Christian at Peacock in the lone girls league game at 6:20 p.m., while boys games see Peacock at Cornerstone, Briercrest Christian at Riverview and Central at Vanier. All start at 8 p.m.
