Kings 3 Clippers 0
The RDC Kings made quick work of the Briercrest College Clippers in their biggest match of the year.
RDC swept the Clippers in three sets (25-20, 25-13, 25-19) Friday night, winning the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference semifinal and advancing to the gold medal match Saturday.
With the win, the Kings return to the provincial final for the first time in three seasons, after seven straight years of playing for a title. It also earned them a berth in the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association National Championships in March, as Alberta gets two spots in the national tournament.
In the south division showdown with a trip to the final on the line, the Kings never blinked and rolled to a victory.
Fourth-year outside hitter Patrik Toze once again rose to the challenge for the Kings, converting 12 kills to lead the way for RDC. He was also player of the game. Kings rookie Carter Hills had nine kills in the victory, while setter Tom Wass had 25 assists and seven digs.
