Fun action in Comox Valley Sports & Social Club playoffs

 

 

 

It’s taken four years, a multitude of roster changes, a few different sports and at least five second place finishes, but Taylor Thibeault finally has himself a Comox Valley Sports & Social Club championship.

The streak of being the bridesmaid ended last Wednesday, as Thibeault and his Amp TNT volleyball team pulled off a clutch 3-2 sets win over Return to Sender in the A Tier final. To say it made his day would be a bit of an understatement.

“It feels great to finally win,” said an excited Thibeault, 26. “I am blessed to have teammates that are as competitive as me and that can have a lot of fun playing volleyball together.”

A new champion was also crowned in the B Tier final, as Show Us Ur Tips edged Hitting Bricks by a 3-2 count in a game that had both teams buzzing about how thrillingly close it was. Show Us Ur Tips captains Elissa Terrey and Phil Goy also had a similar story to Thibeault, winning their first championship after playing numerous seasons across a few different sports with the CVSSC.

The Smokin’ Aces took third spot in the A Tier with a 3-2 win over Sets & Violence, while the A* Team took fifth overall with a 3-0 win over the Block Stars. Rounding out the B Tier was Strike Farce in third with a 3-0 win over We Will Block You, while Served on Ice grabbed fifth spot with a 3-1 win over I’d Hit That. The I.G. Ancient Mariners were seventh after defeating Social Notwork 3-0, and Touch and Go stayed out of the basement by defeating It’s Just a Bump to the Left by a 3-2 final for ninth spot.

Registration is currently open for the co-ed winter sports leagues with the CVSSC, which include new seasons of volleyball, indoor soccer, dodgeball and floor hockey. Small groups, teams and individuals can register online at www.comoxvalleysports.ca.
