Thunder women tame Huskies with three straight sets, extend win streak

The Algonquin women’s volleyball team swept the George Brown Huskies on Nov. 3, keeping them from winning a single set.

The Thunder came out on top, winning three straight sets to finish the game in stunning fashion in front of a loud home crowd of about 100 spectators.

“They didn’t have enough weapons that I was concerned that they would’ve beaten us,” said Coach Everton Senior.

At the beginning of each set, the Thunder was passing well and both teams were making exciting plays to keep the action going.

The Thunder found a rhythm quickly at the start of each set and was able to pull away with the score. But when it came to closing the sets they struggled a little but rallied at the end of their sets to finish strong.

“We were passing well at times and when we do that our offence is almost unstoppable,” said Senior. “The passing started out well but it kind of faded at the end of the sets for some reason. We struggled at the end of every set to close out the set.”

Senior said that his team is looking better each match and are looking forward to sharpening and becoming more consistent.

The Thunder are on a three-game winning streak and currently sit at in the third position in the east with six points.

Next matchup on the schedule is against a struggling Loyalist Lancers on Nov. 10 at Loyalist College.

Lancers are ice cold from coming off of a three-game losing streak and the red-hot Thunder are going to be looking to make it four wins in a row, with four consecutive losses for the opposition.
