After finishing day one with 6 out of 8 sets won, the team was ranked 5th going into day two. The boys then took care of their pre-quarter and quarter final matchups against the Guelph Jr. Gryphons and Toronto West without dropping a set, putting them up against the #1 seeded MAC Titanium in the semi final.
