Mark Isfeld's Anthony Xylinas makes a pass in Wednesday's pool play at the B.C. AA high school boys volleyball championships in Langley.

Isfeld Ice keep hopes of ninth-place finish alive at B.C. AA high school boys volleyball championships

A gritty win Thursday has the Isfeld Ice still in line for a ninth-place finish at the 2016 B.C. AA high school boys volleyball championships.

In their first game on the placement side of the draw on Dec. 1, the #12 seed Ice defeated #13 Lambrick Park Lions of Victoria 25-22, 25-19. Isfeld meets #8 Pacific Christian Pacers of Victoria today (Dec. 2) at 11:30 a.m.

Looking to build on the momentum of their first win at the 16-team tournament, a victory over Pacific Christian would advance Isfeld to the game for 9th-10th place Saturday at 10:15 a.m. against the winner of #11 Clarence Fulton Maroons vs. #10 Prince Charles Bulldogs.

The tourney continues today with semifinals featuring #2 Pacific Academy vs. #6 College Heights and #3 MEI vs. #1 Langley Christian. On Saturday, the bronze medal game goes at 2 p.m. and the gold medal game at 7 p.m.

After going 0-3 in round-robin pool play Wednesday, the Ice fell 3-0 (12-25, 21-25, 12-25) to College Heights Cougars of Prince George in the first round of the playoffs Thursday morning at the Langley Events Centre.

In Pool C play Nov. 30, the Ice lost 18-25, 19-25 to Prince Charles of Creston, 15-25, 20-25 to #9 Hugh McRoberts Strikers of Richmond, and 20-25, 28-30 to Clarence Fulton of Vernon.
