The FGI's overcame a loss in the opening game to storm back for the A title in a volleyball tournament at Quatsino Band Hall Saturday.

COAL HARBOUR—The FGI’s overcame a loss in the opening game to storm back for the A title in a co-ed fundraising volleyball tournament at Quatsino Band Hall Saturday evening.

The Headhunters outlasted FGI’s 27-25 in the first game of the best-of-five format, but FGI’s rallied to pocket the title.

The Quatsinogins cruised to a three-game sweep of Lil Indians in the B final, avenging a loss to the Lil Indians in round-robin play earlier in the day.

The event was a fundraiser for a youth soccer trip to Hawaii this summer. Several of the place-winning teams donated their winnings to the cause.

The tourney drew 10 teams. The Yalis Warriors claimed third place in the A division; Wild Things finished third in the B.
