Maggie Mustang senior boys contained by Coyotes

The Princess Margaret Mustangs lost in four sets to the No.3 ranked George Elliot Coyotes

Liam Brown of the Princes Margaret Mustangs battles a George Elliot Coyote for ball control during Wednesdays senior boys volleyball match between the Penticton and Lake Country rivals.

The Princess Margaret Mustangs senior boys volleyball team lost to No. 3 ranked George Elliot Coyotes in four sets.

“They have a very strong hitter who dominates from both the front and back row and an excellent setter that can get the ball to him,” said Mustangs coach Rich Corrie. “We were able to stop them a number of times, but in the end when they needed a kill, he was able to produce.”

An inability to generate offence off the Coyotes attacks was the difference in the end, said Corrie.

“Jivraj Grewal and Nick Lozinsk provided a great defensive effort,” he added. “Todd Corrie passed and defended well and Reece Haberstock did a good job of distributing the ball to his array of hitters. Max Smeltzer and Liam Brown put up some big blocks.”

With more tournament play Corrie hopes his team will be able to diversfy its attack and keep teams off balance.
