While they don’t get to play to­gether as of­ten as they would like, mem­bers of the Se­nior Male B – Tier 1 team Baie Verte Gan­der (BVG) claimed their se­cond con­sec­u­tive cham­pi­onship at the re­cent NLVA Mol­son Se­nior Provin­cials in Gan­der.

The nine-player team, con­sist­ing of Baie Verte and Gan­der res­i­dents, went through­out the en­tire tour­na­ment with­out los­ing a match, win­ning all six to make the fi­nals.

The cham­pi­onship match was a hard-fought bat­tle against Sher­wood Suites, which went to a third set with the BVG edg­ing out a 16-14 vic­tory.

For a group that only plays to­gether a few times a year, team mem­ber Mark Bur­ton is quite pleased to claim back-to­back ti­tles.

“It was a hard match, but it was a lot of fun,” he said, adding that com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween the play­ers was key to se­cur­ing the win.
