Huskies volleyball teams split last home games of 2018

Two close games see women’s volleyball team lose and men’s team win against Loyalist

The women’s volleyball team came out fighting.

On Saturday, the Huskies just fell shy of the Loyalist Lancers losing  in three straight sets  25-21, 25-22 and 25-23.

Each set saw the lead jumping back and forth between George Brown College’s (GBC) and Loyalist College. 

After a final score of 3-0, the Huskies were left disappointed.

Head coach Daphne Choi thought the game came with both high points and low points for the team.

“I would’ve liked to have won this game and I think we did a good job of keeping up intensity, but then close to the end of it I think we just had too many unforced errors,” said Choi.

Loyalist’s head coach Dominique Dawes felt that the Huskies made tough competitors.

“They really put up a good fight near the end, it didn’t matter what the score was they kept going hard, and that’s what you ask for your team to always do, is to perform.”

The GBC women’s volleyball team is 2-6 for the season. 

Men’s volleyball team wins over Loyalist College

With close scores in every set, the game could’ve been either team’s win, but the Huskies energy prevailed in the end.

The Lancers won the first set with a close score of 25-21, but the Huskies’ didn’t give up.

In the following three sets, GBC consistently scored 25 points and won each time. Meanwhile, the Lancers were slowly losing steam.

“I was very proud, I saw our team hitting the floor on defence, playing with excitement which I was really proud about,” said GBC’s head coach Garrett May. “So I think overall it’s a great team win for us today.”

With a final score of 3-1, the men’s team has now tied up their season record 4-4.

The Huskies face off against the Durham Lords on Thursday, Nov. 29 beginning with the women’s game at 6 p.m.
