Lions outlast Gaels for 3-2 win
Bookmark and Share
KINGSTON, Ont. (February 16, 2013) – The Queen's Gaels men's volleyball team was in action Saturday evening against the York Lions, in OUA Quarterfinal action that saw the Gaels be upset by the 5 seed York Lions, 3-2 (25-23,22-25,25-22,16-25,16-18) in a five set thriller. 

Queen's left no room for doubt in the first set, as they took a commanding 7-1 lead. Mike Tomlinson (Stratford, Ont.) put the Gaels up early recording back-to-back kills. York helped Queen's build a large first set lead, recording six errors early helping Queen's get out in front 16-10 heading into the first set technical timeout. York was able to rally after the timeout being led by offside-hitter Ray Szeto (Sutton, Ont.), and pulling within one, 24-23. After the longest rally of the set, Queen's was able to close out the set defensively, forcing a York error, and winning 25-23.

Tomlinson and crew started the second where they left off, making a dominant stand to win the first few points of the set. York was able to draw even and continue to stay on the Gaels heels throughout the second set. Philippe Goyer (Ottawa) was noteworthy for the Gaels in the second recording three timely and awe-inspiring digs, and a pair of kills to keep Queen's ahead. A tricky dump shot from veteran setter Jackson Dakin (Courtenay, B.C.) followed by a York error gave the tricolour a 21-19 lead late. The Lions were able to draw even at 21 with a kill from Szeto and a Gaels error. York continued to build on their lead with a timely kill from veteran Karim Khalil (Mississauga, Ont.), followed by a Szeto block that gave the Lions a 25-22 set win.

Both teams came out desperate to take the set lead heading into the third. The Gaels were able to take the edge early with strong play up front from Tyler Scheerhoorn (Belleville, Ont.) who contributed on a key block followed by an efficient tip shot. The Gaels rallied and were able to muster a 3-0 run capped off by an authoritative Tomlinson kill.  A powerful Stephen Holmes (Ancaster, Ont.) block midway through the frame really got the crowd into the game, and Holmes was able to follow up with a well placed kill to give Queen's their biggest lead of the set, 13-9. The Gaels were able to maintain their lead heading into the technical timeout with strong play from their front line, including: Goyer, Tomlinson and Scheerhoorn. Queen's continued to show impressive timing and touch on the defensive end of the ball, recording two blocks late to give the Gaels a 21-16 lead. Goyer was able to find open floor with a well placed kill, followed by a York error that closed out the set 25-22, giving Queen's the 2-1 set lead.

York was able to gain some momentum early in the fourth set, kicking the set off on a 5-0 run. The Lions continued their set dominance with Szeto leading the way with three kills early in the set. Szeto and the York front line kept the Gaels diving with powerful kills and tricky dump shots. Queen's did not help their fourth set chances recording multiple attacking errors to help the Lions close out the frame, 25-16.

The final set of the OUA Quaterfinal showdown, saw Queen's return to form and get back to their front line efficiency. An impressive Dakin block on Szeto followed by a Holmes kill gave the Gaels an early 4-2 lead. York's front line proved they could be just as effective with Khalil recording a block on Tomlinson. Khalil then followed up with an off-side attack into Gaels floor to draw things even at five. The two teams exchanged points heading into the fifth set turnaround, with neither team being able to build any sort of lead. The constant exchange of points between the teams forced extra points where York was eventually able to claim the match off a Gaels error. With the win, the Lions now move on to the OUA Final Four tournament that will be held at McMaster University.
