Welsh Completes Comeback With Exclamation Point

Welsh Completes Comeback With Exclamation Point

The Seneca Sting (9-4) defeated the George Brown Huskies (7-6) in four sets 19-25, 25-16, 25-14, 28-26 for their third straight win.

Following a slow first set which saw the Sting trail from the onset, the Sting dominated the middle two sets for convincing wins. One of the biggest keys to their success was the play of Toms Gaikis who continued to be a leader on the floor, finishing with 13 kills.

Helping power the comeback victory was the defensive play as the Sting held a 62-49 advantage over the Huskies. Setter Savino Marques led the Sting with 14 digs and libero Richard Ngo added 13 while Gaikis chipped in defensively with 9 digs.

In a total team effort, the Sting had eight of their ten players finish with at least one kill, the lone exceptions being Marques and Ngo. Isaiah Fogah finished with 7 kills and 7 digs while Khashaiar Mesgar added 6 kills and 7 digs.

The most memorable contribution to the win though came from Malik Welsh. The middle had a thunderous kill with the match tied 26-26 in the fourth set and followed that up with a block to end the match.

The Huskies were led by Vivek Mathimakki who finished with 15 kills. Yuseph Jackman added 7 kills and 7 digs. Pradeep Bhogal had 31 assists and Norbu Shresth topped the Huskies with 12 digs.
