Milton Edge Razors Mine Historic Silver
Feb 25, 2017: Congratulations to the Edge 13u Razors players and coaches for their outstanding (and historic) result at the Bugarski Cup in Newmarket. The team captured silver - the first boys indoor medal for the club!!
The Razors went into the event ranked 7th out of 12 teams but demonstrated that rankings are not always good predictors of outcomes. They won their pool play after defeating 2nd seeded MAC, 15-13 in the 3rd set. They continued in the playoffs to defeat Phoenix in the quarterfinals, and Scarborough Titans in the semi's, both in 2 games straight, to head to the finals against the #1 seed Aurora Storm. The teams were tied 22-22 in the 1st game, after a 10 point comeback by the Edge, but the boys could not hang on for the win losing 25-23. The 2nd game was also close, but the boys fell to the better team that day, settling for the silver.
Coach Gus Tsiapalis, Assistant Coach Paul Abdool and the team parents are pleased and impressed by how far the team has come since the beginning of the season. The tournament was also sentimental for Assistant Coach Paul because the Bugarski Cup was named after his first rep volleyball coach, the late Miroslav “Mike” Bugarski. The players, coaches and parents all feel that the team is poised for a great showing at the Provincials at RIM Park in a few weeks and that this silver medal represents the culmination of lots of hard work and dedication.
16u Girls Take Home Bronze
Feb 19, 2017: Family Day Weekend usually allows for some downtime for players and coaches. For the Edge 16u girls, however, this Famly Day weekend was spent in Hamilton playing in the 16u Winter Extravaganza (hosted by the Hamilton Smash).
The Edge 16U girls entered the two day, 20 team tournament with the hope of picking up a medal. After a challenging first day, where they struggled for consistency, the girls regrouped well Sunday. The team began the day with two straight playoff wins to move into the final four. However, a hard fought semi-final would not go their way. Fortunately, the Edge girls bounced back in a very exciting bronze medal game vs Smash Purple 15u (25-17, 31-29) to claim their first hardware of the season!!! Congrats girls!!!
