RECAP GAME 1

VIU Mariners 3, Niagara Knights 0

Match 3 featured a full-capacity gymnasium at the host Niagara Knights' opening match of the tournament. The Knights fell to the VIU Mariners, last year's national champs, in three sets (25-14, 25-15, 25-12).

The Mariners (23-1) took out the Douglas Royals in the PACWEST final, while had an impressive OCAA playoffs after finishing the regular season with a 10-8 record. The Knights took down some tough competition on route to their second straight silver medal at the OCAA Championship.

Even in front of a booming Knights fan base, the Mariners were not thrown from their game at all as they cruised to a 3-0 victory.

VIU had some impressive performances from their attackers, including strong matches from Danielle Groenendijk and Andrea Cankovic, who both had double digit kills with 15 and 10, respectively. Mariners' fifth-year setter Chantal Cumming helped her teammates reach the double-digit kills as she had 31 assists in the win. Groenendijk took home the 4Imprint Player of the Match.
