The third match of day two involved a clash of massive volleyball powerhouses as the number one seed, Red Deer Kings, faced off against the number four seed, Camosun Chargers
These two elite teams demonstrated just why they were the heads of their Conference with a heated first set. Red Deer started the game off with a display of pure strength as they smashed their way through the arms of Camosun’s blockers.
But the defending champions caught on quickly and sealed their defensive hole. With that fixed, they would go on to crush the Kings, beating them in two consecutive 25-19 sets.
Sensing that an upset was imminent, Red Deer ramped up their game. Their will to survive clashed with the Chargers determination to repeat. This led to an epic fourth set encounter that ramped up the scoreboard, ultimately ending with the Kings taking it 26-24.
With the wind behind them, and momentum well on their side, Red Deer broke through the stalwart defence of the Chargers, and finished the comeback, taking the set 15-11, and the game, 3 sets to 2.
The Player of the Game for Red Deer was Nic Dubinsky. For the Chargers, Haakon Ostrem, brought home the award.
