EDMONTON, AB – The Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) Thunder took on the Augustana Vikings in Saturday night volleyball action to close out their weekend series. The game was a tightly fought, back and forth affair, but the Vikings managed to take all three sets to take the match 3-0.
The first set saw both teams exchange leads throughout, but the Vikings were able to find their offence, and pull away late to take the set 25-22. The second set started out the same way, but the Vikings eventually pulled away to take the set 25-17. They carried this momentum into the third set, taking an early lead. The Thunder pushed backed, and narrowed the gap, but their attempted comeback fell just short as Augustana took the third set 25-22 to take the match in straight sets 3-0.
This concludes the weekend series between these two teams, with the Vikings taking both games. The two teams will meet again at the end of January with Concordia looking to avenge this weekend.
