Boreal men produce much better effort versus Saints
by Cambrian Varsity Athletics
Pretty much right across the board, the young men who comprise the roster of the Collège Boréal Vipères men’s volleyball team could point to a
much more productive outing this past weekend opposite the St Clair Saints than when the teams met in Windsor back in late 2017.
Sure, the end result was familiar, with the Saints earning a 3-0 sweep, outscoring the Vipères 25-19, 25-13, 25-17. But this was a far cry from the 25-6,
25-13, 25-11 drubbing the St Clair side administered on the visitors in part one of the annual home and home regular season series.
After failing to record a clean kill in Windsor, Nathan Rehner pounded down six on 19 attempts, with Michel Ayotte (3), Justin
Lamontagne (2), Gradi Ndumbi (2) and Clayton Geddes (1) also hitting the scoresheet.
Showing the way for the Saints was Rrezart Sadiku (9 kills), with both Mike Knight and Manik Jandoria both almost halfway there
with four each. The defensive tenacity upon which the Vipères pride themselves was evident again opposite St Clair, as Lamontagne (8), Rehner (7), Ayotte
(7) and Zach Ducharme (7) finishing with more than five digs each.
Clayton Geddes was the big man at the net defensively, more than doubling any player on either team with four blocks. With a record of 0-13, Boréal will
take a shot at the next closest team this Wednesday evening at home, welcoming the Cambrian Golden Shield (1-11) for an 8:00 p.m. battle.
Coach Jamie Erven and company close out the season with four games in February, two on the road (February 2nd/3rd) and two at home (February
