Queen’s Gaels vs. York Lions
The Men’s OUA season is winding down, with only a couple games left for each team in the regular season. Only seven teams make the Men’s playoffs, and there is a large build-up of teams fighting for the final spot. The York Lions are one of those teams. Laurier sits in the last playoff spot, but Ryerson and Toronto both are between the Lions and that seventh place. On Sunday, they came up against one of the OUA’s strongest teams in the Queen’s Gaels. If they wanted to prove themselves, this was one of their final opportunities.
The game started quickly, as Queen’s enforced their blocking game early. Gaels’ 13 Michael Amoroso, while solidifying the middle block, also came through with a powerful quick early on. York responded with their own middle, 2 Felipe Humana-Paredes, hitting a quick right back.
