The Assiniboia Rockets gave it one heck of a shot, but the Vanier Vikings still remain unbeaten while not having dropped a set in Moose Jaw High School Athletic Association boys volleyball action.
The Vikings -- who were coming off a victory in their home tournament this past weekend -- faced their closest challenge in league play this season in the first set before eventually prevailing 34-32. Things were slightly more comfortable for Vanier the rest of the way, as they picked up 25-21 and 25-20 victories the next two sets to complete the 3-0 sweep.
Vanier improved to 4-0 on the season with the win, Assiniboia dropped to 3-1 after the battle of the unbeatens.
Both the Central Cyclones and Peacock Toilers improved to 2-2 on the campaign. The Toilers found themselves in a battle before taking a 3-1 (25-19, 24-26, 25-22, 26-24) win over the Cornerstone Christian School Falcons while the Cyclones had a less difficult night, taking a 3-0 (25-8, 25-15, 25-10) victory over the Avonlea Eagles.
Girls league action also saw a first-place match-up, with the Toilers improving to 3-0 on the season with a 3-1 (25-21, 25-27, 25-22, 25-17) victory over the Vanier Spirits (2-2).
