Mission defeats Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers on Thursday

The Mission Roadrunners senior girls volleyball team finished the AAAA Fraser Valley tournament on a high note and earned bronze at the event.

Mission took down Surrey’s Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers 3-1 (22-25, 25-17, 25-15 and 25-18) in the third place game in front of a raucous crowd inside the Mission Secondary School gym on Thursday.

Perhaps the turning point occurred in the third set, when Mission fell behind 5-0 early but battled back to go up 20-10 and eventually win the set.

The tournament was won by the Earl Marriott Mariners, who defeated Semiahmoo in the finals. Mission lost to the Mariners in yesterday’s semi-final.

The strong showing guarantees that the Roadrunners senior girls team will play at the AAAA provincials, which run at the Langley Events Centre from Nov. 29 to Dec. 2.
