With a definitive straight sets 3-0 victory over their final regular season opponent last week, Strike Farce clinched the top seed in the recreational tier of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club 18-team, co-ed volleyball league and a playoff date with fourth-seeded S*M*A*S*H on Wednesday.

The Strike Farce team, captained by James and Kelly Barnie, rolled to a 9-1-1 record while losing just three sets along the way. Their opponents, S*M*A*S*H, are also coming off a strong season with an 8-2-1 record, but dropped their final regular season game in a tight five-set battle, to fall to the fourth seed.

In other recreational tier playoff action, the Ace-Holes (9-2) and Show Us Your Tips (9-2) meet in the other first-place semifinal. Meanwhile, Passing Fancy (6-5) was the fifth seed and will take on eighth seed Boomshakalaka (2-9), and sixth seed Bump, Set, Shank (5-6) will play seventh seed Bump It Up (5-6). The bottom two seeds, Kiss My Pass (1-10) and Sets in the City (0-11), will also face off in a battle to stay out of the basement.

The intermediate tier rounds out its regular season this Wednesday, before playoffs the following week. The Dirty Bandits (12-0) have a stranglehold on the top spot with their undefeated season, but there is a logjam of contenders after them. Return to Sender  (7-4-1) currently sits in second spot, followed by the Needle Park All-Stars(6-4-2), Smokin’ Aces (6-6), and Spike-aholics (5-7), but the final games could shake those rankings up quite a bit. The remaining teams in the tier are Blitz (4-7-1), the A* Team (4-9) and the Block Stars (2-10).
