News18U/14U OVA McGregor Cup Action

01/22/2024by LVC0

It was a weekend full of OVA action for our 18U, 17U and 14U teams!

On Saturday, the Upanga took to the courts in their home gym and while getting off to a rocky start against some local club rivals, the team managed to turn things around in the afternoon and play some inspired volleyball. The morning’s lackluster results saw the team play six matches in total – all back-to-back with only a 25-minute break for lunch between the second and third match. The team made it to the semi-finals but the gruelling schedule caught up with them resulting in a fourth place finish on the day. Still, the team fought hard but fell just short of some hardware.

Our Isihlangu travelled to Brock University for their Select Division tournament at 18U. A rocky start was also on the menu for the Ishies as they struggled to close out a match for the balance of the day. The team will look to bounce back when they host the 17U McGregor Cup – Select Division tournament at Loyola CHS in Oakville on Feb 4th.

Sunday brought our four 14U teams to the court for their TLS tournaments. The Inkemba hosted their Championship tournament in Oakville and had some success in the afternoon by winning the play-in match which set up a quarter final matchup with the eventual tournament champion South County Bandits. The team fought hard all day and now look forward to their next tournament at the end of February.

Nimcha and Silaha played out their tournaments in Woodbridge and competed hard all day. Some very close, three set matches for both teams proved to be the difference on the day for both as they fell short of the winners’ bracket and ended the day in 7th and 9th respectively.

Our Kascara put their skills to the test in Thornhill on Sunday and, much like the other Lakeside teams on the weekend, found themselves struggling to find success in the latter part of the day. Although the team did push their opponents to the brink on a number of occasions, falling just short of closing out games was the story of the day.

Up Next: 16U OVA McGregor Cup action for four Lakeside teams on Jan 27th.
