Ice junior girls win their volleyball tournament

Isfeld and Highland were the host gyms for 12-team invitational

THE ISFELD ICE junior girls volleyball team was all smiles after winning their 12-team invitational tournament.

 

 

 

The Isfeld Ice were the hosts with the most on the weekend as they won their 12-team Invitational Junior Girls Volleyball Tournament.

Two pools of teams competed at Isfeld on Friday and another pool of four were at Highland.

Pool A saw Isfeld upset Brentwood to finish first in their pool.  Carihi upset NDSS to do the same in Pool B.  Timberline and Dover Bay were both in Pool C, and split their two-game match with Dover Bay taking the pool on points.

On Saturday, Isfeld hosted the gold tier, which included Brentwood, NDSS, Carihi, Timberline, Dover Bay and the home team.  Highland hosted the silver tier, which included Highland, Vanier, Wellington, Kwalikum, Aspengrove and a Grade 9 Timberline team.  Taking the top three plaques for the silver tier were: Vanier 1st, Wellington 2nd and Highland 3rd.

The gold tier was very competitive, with only one team failing to earn a match win. Carihi and NDSS came out tied for fourth, but NDSS won the points for and against tiebreaker.  Isfeld played Timberline in the second match of the day, and narrowly won in three games, taking the third game 15-13.  That was Timberline’s only loss of the day.

The last match of the tournament saw Isfeld play Dover Bay, the only two undefeated teams. Isfeld won the first match 25-15, but the second was an intense battle, with the lead changing many times.

Dover Bay came out on top 25-23, forcing a final 15 point tiebreaker game.  Dover Bay came out hammering spikes at Isfeld.  Isfeld ducked and many went out of bounds, starting the match with an 8-4 lead.

The two teams fought for points thereafter, but Isfeld prevailed 15-10 to finish in first place in their own tournament.
