GRIZZLIES FALL TO LANCERS IN SEASON FINALE BUT QUALIFY FOR PLAYOFFS

The Georgian Grizzlies women's volleyball team played their final regular season game of the year when they travelled to take on the Loyalist Lancers on Saturday in Belleville, ON.

The Grizzlies put up a solid effort but just couldn't get over the hump in a tight game falling 3-1 with set scores of 25-22, 23-25, 27-25 and 25-14.

Kelsey Watson (Barrie) led the Grizzlies in scoring with 14 points while Domenica De Francesco (Barrie) wrapped up her solid rookie season with a 12 point performance.

Georgian finishes the regular season with a 6-12 record and are currently in a three-way tie with La Cite and Seneca. They could finish in a four-way tie depending on the results from Monday's game between Loyalist and Fleming.

In either tiebreak scenario, the Grizzlies will finish the season in seventh place in the OCAA east division standings to claim the final playoff spot.

The Grizzlies will travel to take on the OCAA west division champions, the Fanshawe Falcons who finished the regular season at 18-0, next Saturday, Feb. 16 at 1 p.m. in London, ON. The winner of the playoff game will move onto the 2019 OCAA Women's Volleyball Championship.
