Coming off their Silver medal performance the Durham Attack Flare moved up in the rankings and entered this past weekend’s tournament knowing they would likely face some tough competition. The girls opened up the tournament against the Revolution Black and unfortunately had a bit of a post – holiday let down losing both games ( 21 -25 / 14-25).
The schedule then seen our Durham Attack Flare provided a break between games and a chance to regroup. Once play resumed our girls faced the Eagles and dominated the play with convincing back to back wins. Unfortunately the final game of the round robin our girls did not fare as well losing to the eventual gold medal winners the Revolution Merge (17-25 / 13-25)
After the Lunch break the teams were seeded and our Flare’s found themselves pitted against a host team from Leaside in a winner move on match. The girls came out on fire and handed Leaside a loss in the first game (25-18), Leaside then returned the favor in the second game defeating our Flare (25-21). This result set up a third and deciding winner take all match. It was the most exciting game of the Volley Ball season to date with the score going back and forth (at one point 14- 14). Our girls fought hard and battled with pride, however in the end were handed a very disheartening loss (14-16) eliminating them from medal contention this time around!
