The Georgian Grizzlies men’s volleyball team had an impressive showing at the Northern Cup hosted by Cambrian College in Sudbury this past weekend.
After finishing the round robin with a two-two record the Grizzlies rebounded in the playoff round earning a big victory over the Cambrian alumni team who had previously defeated the Grizzlies in their round robin match.
The Grizzlies were down a set but rallied back taking the final two sets (25-18, 15-10) to earn a spot in the finals against the host team from Cambrian.
Georgian couldn’t find a way to solve the Golden Shield in the championship game. After taking the first set 28-26 from the home team, the Grizzlies ran out of gas as Cambrian took the title after set wins of 25-19 and 15-11.
The Grizzlies will take the confidence gained with a second place finish into their OCAA regular season home opener which takes place this Friday, Oct. 24 when they host the George Brown Huskies at 8 p.m. at the Georgian Athletic Centre.
