Forfeits rain down on the Guam Women's College Volleyball League on Thursday
Thursday night was a struggle for the Guam Women's College Volleyball League at the UOG Calvo Field House as forfeits ruled the night.
In the opening match of the evening, the Pacific Islands University Tide forfeited to Guam Community College as they notified UOG Athletics Director Doug Palmer 10 minutes before match time that they did not have enough players for the match. GCC was awarded a 3-0 victory: 25-0, 25-0, 25-0.
With the win, GCC will be the No. 2 seed in the GWCVL Playoffs that start on Oct. 4. GCC could still finish in a tie for second place, but GCC now owns the tiebreaker to make them the No. 2 seed regardless of the final regular season matches on Oct. 1.
In the second match, the UOG Tritons vs. UOG Tridents did not start off well as the Tridents showed up late for the match and forfeited the first two sets to the Tritons, but the third set was played and the Tritons won 25-13 to win the match 3-0 with 25-0, 25-0, and 25-13 scores.
The Tritons with a 5-0 record will be the No. 1 seed for the GWCVL Championship for the third straight year, starting Oct. 4 as they face PIU, which will now finish in fourth place for the third straight year as well with a 0-5 record. Match time is 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 4, and this will be a Triton Night event, sponsored by the UOG Student Government.
The UOG Tridents will be the No. 3 seed and face GCC at 8 p.m. on Oct. 4.
The league has one more regular season night on Oct. 1 with PIU playing the Tridents at 6:15 p.m. and the UOG Tritons facing GCC at 7:45 p.m.
All GWCVL matches are played in the UOG Calvo Field House and admission is free.
