The gold medal match didn’t start in the Chargers favour however as the Mariners dominated with some outstanding plays winning the opening set 25-17.

The second set was extremely tight going back and forth before the Chargers managed to take advantage and tie the match with a 26-24 set win.

The tight play continued in the third as both teams traded points.  However the Chargers again took the lead late and held on for a 28-26 victory which really took the wind out of the Mariners sails.

Despite the outcome both teams will head to the CCAA Nationals in London Ontario in a week and a half.  The Chargers are the PACWEST representative, while the Mariners enter as a wildcard.

Following the gold medal match the PACWEST announced the tournament All-Stars and MVP.
