EDMONTON AB – In this years season opener, the Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) Thunder, took on the visiting NAIT Ooks. In this hard fought match, the Ooks walked away victorious winning 3 sets to 0.
The Ooks and Thunder were head to head in the first set, switching the lead a few times and the Ooks squeezed out a 25-22.

The last two sets were won by the Ooks and although at times the Thunder would finish with a huge kill or a big dig, the game went to the Ooks. Winning the second set 25-19 and the third set 25-18.
