-------

George Brown men’s volleyball (11-3, 2nd east) lost for the first time in six outings on Friday night 3-2 (24-26, 25-22, 25-18, 30-32, 13-15) to their crosstown rival Seneca Sting, who put forth a gutsy effort.

The Huskies had several opportunities to close things out in the fourth set, but credit to the Sting for refusing to go away. The visitors then grabbed the momentum midway through the fifth set and rode it to victory.

Neon Ng had himself an excellent night, finishing with 13 kills and six digs. OCAA All-Star D'Artaniel Jackman had a team-high 16 kills and 11 digs in yet another spectacular performance, while middle Ahmed Youssef wrapped his night with ten kills and six blocks.

With the loss, George Brown stays at 22 points on the season and fall two points behind division-leading Georgian. The Grizzlies currently hold a game in hand.

The women’s team (0-14, 10th east) fell in straight sets 3-0 (12-25, 17-25, 16-25) to the visiting Sting.

Kelsey-Jane Lamprecht led the way with six kills on 22 total attacks, continuing her run of strong play since she re-entered the line-up six games ago. In her past four outings Lamprecht has now combined for 34 kills and 38 digs, a major boost to the Huskies frontline.

Fellow recent addition and setter Jasmin Walia was solid, leading George Brown with eight assists while consistently setting the table for the Huskies attack.

Despite the losses piling up, the program does continue making incremental improvements.

Next up the Huskies will travel to Georgian for crucial games against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, January 31. Follow @GBC_Huskies on twitter for updates throughout the night.
