The Mohawk Mountaineers will meet the Fanshawe Falcons later this afternoon (March 1) for the bronze medal at the OCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship in Windsor.
The Mountaineers swept the Humber Hawks 3-0 to earn their spot and attempt to medal for the fifth straight year.
Mohawk scored a convincing 25-14 decision in the first set against Humber this morning (March 1), but they needed an incredible comeback in the second game. The Mountaineers were down 9-1 and 16-7 before a huge rally got them a 25-23 victory.
The third set saw the Hawks, down 21-15, try for a big rally themselves, but they could only get to within two points before the Mountaineers finished them off, 25-22.
Charlie Hancock, who had 17 points and a service ace, was named Mohawk’s top player in the contest. Adam Schiedel had seven kills and Mark Kaveckas provided 30 assists.
The Mountaineers and Falcons will meet at 4:00 pm. They’ll be followed by host St. Clair Saints and Niagara Knights in the gold medal match at 6:00 pm.
