Capilano Blues @ VIU Mariners - Saturday February 8, 8:00pm | WATCH HERE

This will be a dandy tonight as the top two teams in the Conference square off. In their only other meeting in October the Mariners swept the Blues with a pair of four set victories. They are currently tied for second place with identical records and have been on fire. The Mariners are the hottest team in the PACWEST winning 12 straight and the Blues have won 15 of their last 16 matches. Obviously playoff positioning is on the line tonight and in tomorrow’s rematch.
