Pilipa'a Volleyball

Atlanta 09 – Day 5 (18’s Game Day 2)

Day two of competition for the Pilipa’a Boy’s 18’s started off with a disappointing 3-game Challenge Bracket loss to Space Needle VB Fuse(25-22, 25-27, 15-13), knocking Pilipa’a out of the hunt for the Gold Medal.  Pilipa’a fought hard but errors and injuries created problems that they were not able to overcome.

Despite the early setback, Pilipa’a bounced back to win their next three matches over Bay to Bay Nike of Northern California (25-27, 25-20, 15-10), CNY VB Kings (25-6, 25-16), and Irish Juniors (25-22, 28-26).

“Nagging injuries to several players forced us to adjust our lineup, however our versatility allowed us to overcome some of our challenges and finish 3-1 on the day,” said coach Ecko Osorio.

Pilipa’a is currently 4-3 in the tournament and will face HVA 18-1(LS) at 3pm (EST) followed by Kaizen Boys 18’s (OK) at 4pm, Coastal VA B18 (OD) at 7pm, and a rematch with Florida Sons VBC at 8pm.
