Coming off of a 3 set win vs the Medicine Hat Rattlers yesterday, the Lions looked to continue their 3 game winning streak, this time at home.
The Lions came out aggressive and smart to start the match. While they didn't blow MHC out of the water with their power, they used their strengths to their advantage, took care of the volleyball on their side of the court and hit the open spots in the Rattlers defensive.
