The Vanier Vikings boys volleyball team headed into league play with another plaque in their trophy case after winning their home tournament during the Sept. 24 weekend.

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).

The Briercrest Christian Academy Cougars kept pace with the leaders and improved to 2-1 with a 3-1 (21-25, 25-19, 25-15, 25-20) victory over the Notre Dame Hounds (0-3).

Boys league action continues on Tuesday, Oct. 4, with Peacock at Vanier, Cornerstone at Avonlea and Central at Assiniboia, with all games starting at 7 p.m. The girls are also back on the court on Oct. 4, as Notre Dame is at Central at 7 p.m. and Peacock at Briercrest at 8 p.m.
