In their second match of the week, the Colt's Boy's Varsity Volleyball team played a tough match against the MSJ Warriors. It was evident before the match had begun that the guys were pumped for the match. But unfortunately the boys' lost the match 1-3 with the scores as following: 25-18, 21-25, 16-25, and 13-25.
The first game was the type of match you'd expect from two excellent teams in NCS. It was nearly the same during the second game and everyone knew that it could be anyone's match. But the final two games caused many to wonder if this was the same team that played excellent games in the first half. "[All the determination] from the beginning of the match just died out towards the end," said volleyball manager Allison Quiros.
Senior T.J. Matsumoto observed while on the sidelines that, "once we got into the third and fourth game, [Mission's middle blocker] began to dominate and we began to get down on ourselves".
But regardless of the result of the match, certain individuals did well in terms of stats. Senior Dan Dario had a total of 13 kills and 8 digs while junior Matt Guzman had 6 kills, 1 block, and 4 digs.
With week one of league completed, the Colt's are 1-1; not a bad start. Next week they'll be facing American High School at American on Tuesday. Let's hope that the upcoming matches don't leave any room for disappointment.
