Banditz Robbed of Perfect Volleyball Season


The Dirty Banditz fell four points short of a perfect season in the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s co-ed volleyball league. Unfortunately for them, those four points were the difference between a first- and second-place finish in the intermediate tier.

After posting a 14-0 regular season record where they didn’t lose a set, their drive to perfection hit a wall after advancing to the final against a strong Return to Sender squad. The teams battled to a deciding third set, where a killer combination of hits and timely tips was enough to build a small cushion for Return and Sender and eventual 15-11 victory to take first place.


The Needle Park All-Stars finished in third place out of the eight teams in the intermediate tier with a 2-0 victory over the Smokin’ Aces, while Blitz won 2-1 over the Spike-aholics for fifth place, and the A* Team capped the action with a 2-0 win over the Block Stars for seventh overall.

The final in the 10-team recreational tier also went the distance, as the Ace-Holes and S*M*A*S*H engaged in a back-and-forth game with plenty of big rallies. The Ace-Holes finally pulled out the 3-2 victory thanks in part to a sliding dig by Dan Armstrong that seemed to change the momentum in the deciding set.

Strike Farce landed third place with a 3-2 win over Show Us Your Tips, while Bump, Set Shank won 3-0 over Passing Fancy to take fifth place. Bump it Up beat Sets in the City to nail down seventh place, and Kiss My Pass rounded out the final games with a 3-2 win over Boomshakalaka to finish in ninth.

Registration is currently open for all of the CVSSC’s co-ed winter leagues, including volleyball, indoor soccer, dodgeball and floor hockey. Players, small groups and teams can register online at for the leagues that begin in January.
