The Guam Nationals defeated the UOG Tridents 3-0 while the Bombers defeated Limitless 3-1 in Triton League action.

In the opening match, Limitless played well early and gave the Bombers a good match through the first two sets, with the action being tied 1-1 as the Bombers won the first set 25-23 and then Limitless defeated the Bombers 25-20 in the 2nd set.

The Bombers took control in the 3rd set, with a 25-19 win and the Andersen team pulled out the 4th set with a 25-22 win and the Bombers won the match 3-1.

The Tridents lost the first set 25-23 in a close match that the Tridents had the lead late but could not hold off the National Team’s rally. The Nationals won the 2nd set easily, 25-17, but the Tridents showed character and again led late, but the experienced national team was just too strong in the final points again and won 25-23.
