Trojans turn it on at Megabowl

Despite consecutive losses to close out round-robin play, the D.P. Todd Trojans were undeterred.

They saved their best for the playoff round at the Kelly Road Megabowl senior boys volleyball tournament and got what they were after - a tournament title to solidify their top-10 double-A provincial ranking.

Led by tournament MVP Cole Johnston and all-star Colby Graham, the Trojans swept the Duchess Park Condors in straight sets in the final, winning 26-24, 25-19 to avenge their three-set loss to the Condors in the round robin earlier Saturday.

The Condors, backed by all-stars Isaac Northrup and Dylan Nash, went 4-0 in the round robin and advanced directly to the championship match. The Trojans, ranked sixth in the province, dispatched the host Kelly Road Roadrunners 25-22, 25-19 in a semifinal match. Kelly Road went 3-1 in the five-team round robin.

In the consolation match Saturday, the Cedars Christian Eagles topped the Prince George Polars 25-23, 25-13.

The other tournament all-stars were: Karl Kibonge of Cedars; Logan Hladchuk of PGSS; and J.T. Laxdal and Caleb Gurney of Kelly Road.

It's getting down to crunch time in the chase for the two double-A boys provincial berths open to North Central zone teams. The College Heights Cougars have remained all season in the top three in the provincial rankings and were second in last week's rankings. They have to be considered favourites to claim one of those berths.

Heading into the weekend, Duchess Park was ranked 10th in the B.C. Boys Volleyball Association top-10 poll and Kelly Road had honourable mention status.

The double-A boys provincial championship will be hosted in Langley, Nov. 28 to Dec. 1.
