Huskies men's volleyball improved to 12-4 on Saturday afternoon after a 3-2 victory over Centennial.
---------------------

George Brown volleyball split a pair with the Centennial Colts on Saturday afternoon as OCAA crossover weekend inches closer.

The men’s team (12-4, 2nd east) completed the season sweep with a 3-2 (25-27, 25-11, 27-25, 17-25, 15-12) comeback five-set win.

After dropping the opening set, the Huskies roared back to win two straight before falling in the fourth. They assured themselves the win in the fifth, with clutch play from Vivek Mathimakki, Neon Ng and Ray Tantengco down the stretch. Trailing 8-6, the Huskies went on a decisive 9-4 run. 

Second-year head coach Garrett May leaned heavily on his bench after the opening set, and they did not disappoint, making crucial plays throughout.

Matt Krok paced the Huskies, tallying a game-high 14 kills and two blocks while changing the momentum at several key times. Middle Ahmed Youssef and Mathimakki were solid as well, combining for 15 kills, six blocks and nine digs. Off the bench, Yuseph Jackman, Jacob Ociesa and Pradeep Bhogal were difference makers.

George Brown continues to inch closer and closer to locking themselves into the east's second seed.

The women’s team (0-16, 10th east) dropped a 3-0 (14-25, 14-25, 11-25) decision to a red-hot Centennial Colts team that has now won nine games in a row. 

Kelsey-Jane Lamprecht and Julia Vit combined for nine kills on the afternoon, while Jasmin Walia led the way with ten assists. Walia, a winter semester addition to the roster, continues to prove herself a valuable asset on both sides of the net. Alongside Lamprecht, Poupart, Julia Vit and Kristan Luong, George Brown has shown steady improvement despite it not showing up in the win column.

Next up the Huskies will play host to the Canadore Panthers on Saturday, February 10 at St. James. Women’s game gets underway a 1 p.m., men’s game at 3 p.m.
