EDMONTON, AB – In Saturday afternoon matinee action, the Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) Thunder took down the visiting Grande Prairie Regional College (GPRC) Wolves in straight sets 3-0 to complete the weekend sweep. The Thunder grabbed control of the match early, and never looked back as they put the Wolves away quickly.
The Thunder came out of the gate strong, and took control early, taking the first set 25-22. The Wolves, however, pushed back strong in the second set and made things interesting. The Thunder ended up rallying late in the set, and came out victorious by a 27-25 score. The third set again started out with back and forth action, but the Thunder took control late to take the set 25-18.
This win gives the Thunder a weekend sweep over the Wolves. The two teams will meet again in Grande Prairie in January with the Wolves looking to even the score. The Thunder return to action next Saturday when they host the visiting Lakeland Rustlers.
