The weather may have been cold but the heat on the court was high as the Mohawk Mountaineers took on the Fanshawe Falcons during the women’s volleyball game Thursday night (Dec.7).
The night was part of November’s Mental Health Awareness month. Green t-shirts were handed out in support of the cause and all proceeds from the night were donated to the Hamilton Suicide Prevention Community Council.
The first set of the night started off strong with Mohawk scoring the first point. Mohawk kept the lead for much of the first set, however Fanshawe was quick to redeem themselves. The Mountaineers found themselves on the wrong end of a 25-20 score, giving Fanshawe the lead.
As the second set began, Fanshawe was determined to keep their lead. Mohawk trailed, but caught up mid-set. The set finished with a close score of 25-23, Fanshawe.
Fanshawe was on top of their game in the third set. Mohawk pushed hard against their opponents, however it was not enough. Fanshawe took the win once again with a 25-18 score ending the game.
Although the Mountaineers took a loss, Danielle Kamps of the Mountaineers said the team has a lot to learn from this game.
“When we make a mistake, we need to come back from it, come back together as a team and just move on to the next point,” said Kamps.
This was the final game before the holiday break. Mohawk will face off against Boreal in their next game, Jan. 13, 2018.
