In an all-Lloydminster bronze medal game at the Border Battle middle school volleyball tournament, the Bishop Lloyd Lancers girl’s team needed to come from behind to win the bronze medal, defeating the College Park Cobras in three sets.
Bishop Lloyd lost the first set 25-21, but edged out the Cobras 25-21 in the second set to force a third and deciding set.
The Lancers wouldn’t waste the opportunity, jumping out to a large lead before closing out the final set with a 15-3, winning the match 2-1.
“We had a big comeback and that felt pretty good,” said Lancers coach Michael Moser. “This is one of our first big wins so the girls are pumped. We’ll be looking for more.”
During the round robin, Bishop Lloyd went a perfect 3-0, defeating Marwayne, Pierceland and La Loche dropping only one set to the Pierceland to take the top spot in Pool F.
They moved onto defeat Kitscoty in the first round of the playoff bracket and St. Jerome’s from Vermilion in the quarter-finals, but fell to the North Battleford Comp High School in the semi-finals, setting up the meeting with College Park who lost their semi-final match to Jonas Samson school.
Despite missing the finals, the Lancers were happy with their bronze medal, as the early season tournament was a chance to see where the team stood heading into the rest of the season and what things they still need to work on.
“All our starters are Grade 9, so they have played together for awhile,” said Moser. “So we’re off to a good start but we definitely got things to work on.”
