LVC and Stunners Clinch Playoffs
June 1st at the JVA Summerfest in Columbus, Ohio, LVC squared up with Chicago Icemen for their final match of the event. Though Icemen was able to come from behind late in the 5th set to secure the victory behind Andrey Diachkov’s brilliant serving, LVC picked up the point that they needed to lock themselves into the post season. LVC currently sits atop the Eastern Conference at 6-3 with 20pts in the standings. Icemen finished their season 6-6 and need help from the Western Conference to stop Pineapple from securing a spot in their final event.
June 8th in Angola, Indiana, Costa Mesa Stunners defeated Santa Barbara Rising Tide 3-0 (28-26, 25-21, 25-14). The victory put the Stunners at 6-1 with 17 its for the season putting them mathematically out of reach from Phoenix Ascension who is currently winless on the season.
The two final playoff spots are still up for grabs. Pineapple needs 1 victory to earn their spot and eliminate Chicago Icemen. Rising Tide currently needs 1 more victory to secure the 2nd seed in the Western Conference. Stay up to date by downloading the NVAUSA APP and by checking out NVAUSA.com.
