SHOCK 16's had their final tune up before the MVA provincial championships next weekend at Red River College, and made the most of their opportunity. The team played well in pool play, defeating Dynamo Grey, Storm Black and Fury before meeting Storm Blue in the quarterfinal. After a solid 2 set win, SHOCK would face off against a very competitive Cats team who would give SHOCK a great test in the semi final. After a few back and forth runs in the first set, the Cats played great defence and won the first set by a score of 26-24. After going down 12-5 in the 2nd set, SHOCK had to regroup and keep chipping away in order to push it to a 3rd frame. With some great serving from Alexa Kozlowski, and several thundering kills on the outside from Zoë Dyck and Alexa Wieczorkiewicz, they took the 2nd set and came out on top in a tight 3rd set, winning by a score of 16-14. After Winman defeated Dynamo in the other semi final, the two teams would meet for the first time this year in what would be a well played final. After a back and forth start, SHOCK pulled away in both sets to win the match 2-0 and get back to the top of the podium just in time for the MVA provincial championships next weekend at Red River College. Train hard this week and good luck next weekend!
