Avonlea upsets fourth-ranked Cornerstone
Eagles advance to senior boys’ semifinals
for Cornerstone this season as they dropped their first three matches before winning three of their last five.
Like their female counterparts, it was a bit of a culture shock going up into the senior division. But with an extremely young team, Elliott feels they have a bright future.
“We are only losing one guy. We only have one senior on the team so we could be a force to reckon with,” she said.
Even in the quarter-finals, every set was close and could have gone either way.
Cornerstone now moves on to their conference playdowns on Nov. 10 and 11 in Carnduff and playing at the senior level has been a good warm up heading into the tournament.
“I think we have a good chance actually to go to regionals,” Elliott said.
League playoffs will continue on Thursday as Avonlea will return to Moose Jaw to face Central in the semifinals, while Peacock will host Vanier. Both games get underway at 8 p.m. The winners will face each other in the city finals on Nov. 7 at 8 p.m.
