TRU won in four sets. The scores were 25-20, 23-25, 25-19, 25-16.  Both teams are now 2and8 on the season. “It was nice to see the team play with so much emotion,” said WolfPack head coach Pat Hennelly. “They did for the entire match.”

He had 17 kills in 29 chances with three service aces, five digs and five solo blocks.  Brad Gunter (1st year, outside hitter, Courtenay) had 12 kills in 25 swings with two digs.   Chris Osborne (2nd year, outside hitter, Phoenix) had 11 kills in 21 chances with eight digs and a solo block.

“Colin Carson (4th year, setter, Prince George) did a great job of running the offence and leading with 10 digs on the defensive side,” Hennelly added.  “We served tougher and that helped our defence.”
