Sport Manitoba – There was gold on the line at Investors Group Athletic Centre tonight between Manitoba and Alberta’s female volleyball teams. After dropping an evenly matched first set, Manitoba stormed back and won the next three to win the championship match and secure Manitoba’s 10th gold medal at the Canada Summer Games. Manitoba also had a chance at bronze on the soccer pitch today but our male soccer team fell to Quebec, 2-1.

Manitoba’s female volleyball team forced extra points in the first set, which Alberta won 30-28. Then Manitoba managed to turn the match by winning the subsequent three sets: 25-22, 25-20 and 25-15. Team Manitoba lost only one match through qualification and playoff rounds. 

Manitoba’s soccer team earned the right to play for bronze tonight, facing Quebec for the second time in the tournament after previously playing to a 0-0 draw on Wednesday. Quebec took a 2-0 lead early in the match and Manitoba could only partially overcome the deficit, losing 2-1 and finishing competition in fourth. 

Team Manitoba female softball ended competition tonight with a 5-0 win in the fifth-place contest versus Quebec. Manitoba won their last three games of the tournament and ended with a record of 6-6. 

Manitoba ends competition with a new provincial record for total medals and gold medals won at the Canada Games. Team Manitoba athletes won 42 medals, consisting of 10 gold, 15 silver, and 17 bronze. Team Manitoba athletes, coaches, and mission staff will participate in the closing ceremonies of the Canada Summer Games tomorrow at Investors Group Field, beginning at 2 p.m. Team Manitoba’s flag bearer for the ceremonies will be announced in a news release tomorrow morning.
