First-round matches set


The playoffs now beckon with the conclusion of the Fort Frances Women’s Volleyball League’s regular season last night.
All the first-round ‘A’-side matchups are set for the double elimination post-season, which gets underway March 24 at Fort High and St. Michael’s School.
Eighth-ranked I’d Hit That (47 points) takes on ninth-rated Wild Sets (43), which was one of two teams to garner the maximum six points last night.
The winner advances to play regular-season champion How I Set Your Mother (112).
Seventh-place Let’s Talk About Sets (50), meanwhile, faces 10th-seeded We Could Carry Less (40), with second-ranked No Diggity (99) to play the winner.
No Diggity is going into the playoffs on a roll after reaching the six-point mark last night.
Third-place Scared Hitless (93) will await the victor between sixth-ranked Gillons’ (78), which was nosed out of fifth place by one point last night by Bump it Up (79), and 11th-seeded Rockstars (15), who just avoided finishing in the basement.
That distinction belongs to No. 12-ranked Sloppy Sets (14), who will play Bump it Up for the right to advance to the second round against fourth-place That’s What She Set (87).
First-round losers will drop to the ‘B’-side of the playoff draw, where one more loss will bring their season to an end.
The championship match is set for April 14.
