President’s Cup Male Champions, Enforcers were eliminated from this year’s competition on Tuesday night at the YMCA Volleyball Indoor facility.
Enforcers were edged out by Pytonz 3-2 in the best of five sets in the feature encounter.
After being 1-0 down with Pytonz taking the first set 28-26, the champions quite seemingly were on their way to advancing to the finals of the competition for the second consecutive year winning the second and third sets 22-25,15-25 but a number of turnovers and mental lapses would cost them the match.
Pytonz, facing elimination, rallied to push to the final fifth set, winning the fourth 25-22. The venom continued to spread over Enforcers as in the final set they were edged out 15-13.
With this win, Pytonz will face off versus powerhouse team, Stoneville who advanced a day earlier after defeating High Flyers 3-2 in sets, 20-25, 25-21, 25-20, 26-18, 15-13 while in the female category defending champions, Paragons and F and G Trading Jets will square off.
Paragons were the first of the two teams to advance after defeating Neil Cochrane Da Squad 3-1 in sets on Monday night, winning, 24-26, 25-17, 25-20, 25-6.
Jets followed suit a day later with an impressive straight sets victory over North Coast Hardware (NCH) Starz Nova, winning 26-24, 25-20, 25-16.
Both finals will follow a best of three games format as Game One is expected to spike off on Thursday at 6:30 pm with Jets versus Paragons, followed immediately by the much-anticipated Stoneville vs Pytonz match-up.
The third-place match however in both divisions is scheduled to spike off tonight at 6:30 pm.
