OVA Bronze for Vipers Force!

IMG_0771.jpg

Last Saturday, the 15U Vipers Force team played like they have never played before! They started off the day with a big win against Chatham Ballhawks, followed by a close game with Woodstock Warriors 14U. This left the Vipers 2nd in their pool after pool play. 

In the playoffs, the Vipers faced LVC Fire Explode for the quarter finals! The girls came out playing hard, beating LVC in the third set with a score of 15-10! A parent from another team approached our coaches and told them what an amazing game it was to watch! The team was off to the semifinals, matched up against the Scorpions. The girls fought hard taking it to three sets, passing the difficult serves and swinging hard, but fell short in the third set. Although the day was not over yet, the Vipers still had the bronze medal match ahead of them! Staying positive and eager for a medal, the girls challenged the Norfolk Chaos Impact to three very intense sets, keeping them on their toes! At 14-11 in the third set, Vipers had the serve, with the gym quiet and the pressure on, Vipers were able to take the win with an ace serve on game point! 

It was such an exciting day! Coach Nat and Coach Alli are extremely proud of the girls for getting their first medal of the season! They’d like to send a HUGE thank you to Coach Wayne for coming out and helping the girls on such an eventful day! Way to go Vipers!

The Season of Giving!

Today was such an exciting day for our Viper family!

Our 14U girls fought hard at their exhibition tournament today bringing home the GOLD medal! We are so proud of this team's consistency and drive so far this season! 

Our 15U girls also had a great day at their OVA tournament! They went undefeated all morning, winning their first three games in two sets. Our girls played great, only dropping sets to a tough 14U Hurricanes Blue team in the semis with scores of 21-25, 25-17 and 12-15. Moving into the Bronze medal game the girls had a bit of a slow start against the 14U Niagara Rapids Summit but managed to come back from a score of 18-24 winning 27-25, keeping the parents and coaches on the edge of their seats! The girls then went on to finish the second set with a convincing score of 25-18 securing our BRONZE medal!

We are so proud of all of our girls! Congratulations to the parents, coaches and players! Way to go Vipers!
