All three sets were close, but the Central Cyclones found another gear when it counted during Moose Jaw High School Senior Girls Volleyball League action.

The Cyclones scored a win over the Peacock Toilers in three straight sets (25-21, 25-21, 25-16) on Thursday.

“We’ve been practicing really hard, so we were ready for what they had,” said Central senior Marlee Barber.

Peacock was right there in every match, but Central always seemed to have something extra in the tank to finish off the set for the win.

Toilers coach Lorne Polupski said that was on him for not having the team prepared for the game.

“We played Caronport on Thursday, got our butts kicked, and we only had one practice with the Thanksgiving weekend, but I’ll wear that,” he said.  “We didn’t come in here prepared, we weren’t focused and they played great.”

With a big win over their rivals under their belt, Barber said that the Cyclones are feeling good about where their game is.

“We’ve come together really good as a team and the girls are all really nice to each other, so it’s good to have that team bonding,” she said.

“This win will really help us for the rest of the season.”

The Toilers will be heading back to the drawing board after losing back-to-back match-ups.

“We need to work harder, we’re going into the second half of our season, we’ve got a big home tournament this weekend, so we’ll see how we rebound from this,” said Polupski.

In other senior volleyball action on Wednesday night, the Central boys pulled out a hard fought five-set win (20-25, 23-25, 25-22, 25-23, 15-9) over Peacock.

The Caronport Cougars topped the Vanier Spirits in three straight sets (25-12, 25-23, 25-16), while the Vanier Vikings knocked off the Avonlea Eagles in five sets (21-25, 25-11, 18-25, 25-14, 15-10).

The Moose Jaw Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament goes this weekend.
