And that’s especially good news for the Vanier Vikings and Spirits after the most recent league night on Tuesday, as both squads remained undefeated on the season and improved to 4-0 with a pair of straight-sets victories.
For the Vikings, it was a surprisingly comfortable contest against the Peacock Toilers (1-3) as they won 25-9, 25-14, 25-16. The Spirits had a little tougher time at Cornerstone Christian School (1-3) but the end result was the same in a 25-19, 25-16, 25-14 win.
The battle for second place in the boys league looks to be a tough one indeed, with the contest between the Avonlea Eagles and Central Cyclones offering the latest example. Avonlea emerged victorious and improved to 3-1 after an epic 3-2 (25-20, 21-25, 27-25, 23-25, 15-9) war. The Cyclones dropped to 2-2.
The Cornerstone Christian School Falcons kept pace and improved to 3-1 with a 25-23, 25-16, 25-9 win over Riverview/Mortlach (0-4).
Girls league action saw the Peacock Toilers rebound from a tough loss to the Spirits with a 3-1 (25-6, 25-17, 25-27, 25-18) victory over Central.
