Saturday April 20, 2013; Defending champions ECFH took on WLBL to starting the evening. With former employee and last years’ MVP Amobi Armstrong, cheering them on from the stands, ECFH won this on pretty easy with great blocking by #1 Ryan Devaux. The second match of the evening saw the undefeated C Beverages take on NSDC. The match was filled with point changes and rallies as the two teams battled; CBS to secure the 1st place in their group and NSDC to secure second. C Beverages took this on in straight sets. The closer for the night and prelims was WASCO vs CFL; WASCO seeking their first win of this tournament and CFL look for their second win to put them in good position in the quarter finals. The match remained close the entire way. #12 Gillan Octave led his CFL team and WASCO #6 Timothy James defensively. They match end in a 3rd set tie-breaker which saw CFL the victor. ECFH WLBL
