Despite a number of early service errors, the Blues were able to rebound and keep the Bearcats guessing on offence. Markiel Simpson led all attackers with 10 kills and Justin Yee had eight. Setter Simon Friesen was named Player of the Match with 26 assists and a kill.
The Bearcats’ season comes to a close. Jacob Molitwenik led the offence with six kills and setter Graham Walkey was named the Player of the Match with 17 assists and a kill.
