Walnut Grove fell 3-2 (25-19,25-15,14-25,21-25,15-13) to the Dover Bay Dolphins, the top team from Vancouver Island.

The Gators had gone 0-3 in power pool play on the first day of the championships before knocking off the Delta Pacers 3-1 (23-25,25-17,25-23,25-17) in the round of 16 match.

Walnut Grove wraps up the championships with two more matches and the team can finish anywhere from fifth to eighth at the 20-team tournament.
