Titans prevail over v-ball Mountaineers

Mohawk was eliminated from the Limoilou invitational men’s volleyball tournament in Quebec City after dropping a five-set decision to their hosts in playoff action on Saturday night.

After winning a pair of pool matches against St. Thomas University of Fredericton and St. Jerome Quebec on Friday, Mohawk lost 3-1 to Beauce-Appalaches of Ville Saint-Georges Quebec in their final preliminary match Saturday afternoon. Then against the Limoilou Titans, they had an opportunity to advance, but were defeated 17-15 in the decisive fifth set.

Mountaineers’ head coach James Bradley said mistakes have been a problem this season and the team made several in this match.

Coming off the Christmas break has not given the Mountaineers a lot of time to practice. However, Bradley felt his top ranked Ontario Colleges Athletic Association squad turned the corner in its play in that final game, despite the defeat.

The Mountaineers now will prepare to resume OCAA Central West Region action Tuesday, Jan. 15 at Sheridan, before returning to the Fennell Gym Saturday, Jan. 19, when St. Clair checks in.

Mohawk will enter the new semester with a 5-0 league record.
