18U Boys Legacy Continue Winning Ways

December 2 - The KW Predators volleyball club continued their medal-grabbing ways by winning 3 more medals on December 2.

Leading the charge was the 2017 National Bronze medalists at 17U, the 18U Boys Legacy. Playing in the Premier Division, the boys advanced through a very competitive pool, finishing first and preparing them for the playoff grind that has come to be synonymous with the 18U boys competition. In the quarter-finals, the boys faced the Pakmen 17U. In a tough match, the boys were able to prevail, winning a close match in 2 straight game. This victory move the boys onto the semi-finals where they were pitted against Aurora Storm. The boys rolled through that match which meant that Legacy would face their rivals from Mississauga, Pakmen 18U. On this day the Preds were no match for the defending provincial champs as they were defeated 16-25, 21-25 to take home the silver.

Our second medal came courtesy of our Girls 16U Invasion team. Playing in the 17U Challenge Cup Trillium Division the girls swept the day, never dropping one set. Obviously, the girls finished first in their pool and then swept the Niagara Rapids in the quarters, Summit 17U in the semis and in a very close final, defeated Oakville Thunder Blue 25-22, 27-25 to win the gold.

The final medal belonged to the Preds 17U Girls. Competing in the 17U Challenge Cup, the girls rolled through pool play and the quarters, defeating the 18U Scorpions, Twin Bridges and Windsor Sky, respectively. The Preds then faced a very good Niagara Rapids team in the semi-finals. With both teams playing at high level, neither team could pull away from the other. The Preds finally pulled away at the end to win a close first game 26-24. The second game was also hotly contested, but the Preds captured an early lead that they would not relinquish in winning 25-20. This set up a tough final matchup with MVC 17U from Hamilton. The Preds won a very close game one and were neck in neck in game two when the team hit a wall. The much fresher team from Hamilton continued to roll winning both games 2 and 3 handily, leaving the Preds with a Silver medal on the day.

Two more weeks remain before the Christmas break for the Preds to add to the medal haul.

Go Preds!!! #predsnation
