Queen’s Gaels vs. Guelph Gryphons

Queen’s and Guelph came into their last regular season game tied in second on the Men’s OUA Standings. Whoever won Sunday’s match-up would claim the higher spot going into the playoffs. With everything on the line, these two teams came to play.

Guelph played some incredible defence early on, but the play still resulted in an emphatic, untouched quick from Queen’s 13 Michael Amoroso. Queen’s 12 Anthony Pitfield gave his own effort at defence, as he went sliding into the advertisements that surround the court. His efforts went for naught in the end, as he couldn’t manage the dig.

Queen’s Gaels vs. Guelph Gryphons

Sunday marked the final day in OUA competition for the women. The Queen’s Gaels were riding high after taking down the league’s top team in McMaster the day before. Guelph were salivating over the opportunity to leapfrog McMaster in the standings with a win. It may have been the final day in season competition, but there was still plenty on the line when the two teams met.

Guelph built some energy early through the impressive play of libero 8 Megan Canavan. Her early digs gave the squad extra chances to attack, and the way she went about it seemed to push the team harder. At times, Guelph would stick to defence and free balls, waiting for the eventual Queen’s error. The visitors took the early lead 10-6.

The Week in Review: Women's OUA Jan 26, 28-30, 2011

Photo: Cameron Dunlop, McMaster AthleticsThis weekend saw the OUA make the final turn onto the home stretch of the regular season in women's volleyball.  With only two weeks of games remaining, playoff spots are almost completely locked in.  York, Queen's and Ottawa have secured playoff spots.  Although home court advantage is far from locked with two points separating these first three teams, the real fight in the east division is for the fourth and final playoff spot.

RMC and Toronto are both tied with 10 points after this weekend.  Toronto has three games remaining to RMC's four.  Whoever wins the most games from here on in will secure the final playoff spot in the OUA east.  Both teams play their final regular season game on February 13th.
