The Falcons upped their mark to 7-2 after their fifth win in a row.
”It was a close game all the way through, said Mohawk head coach Kevin Duffy. “We just couldn’t get any momentum going on offense and it cost us. Defensively, I thought we played well enough to win. It’s a tough loss against a very fierce rival.”
It was a sweep for the Mohawk men’s volleyball team against Conestoga at the David Braley Athletic and Recreation Centre last Friday.

The Mountaineers saw their record drop to 3-5, while the Condors improved to 3-4.
“We deserved to win tonight,” said Mohawk head coach Andrew Nicholson. “Conestoga defended well but we really played well enough for extended periods, to win this match. Unfortunately we passed poorly at the very beginning and very end of the fifth set. We have dug ourselves a huge hole now but we still have time to get back into playoff contention.”
