Wong was on fire, positing a hitting percentage of .517, while Whiting also chipped in 6 kills of her own.

The Nanooks spoke after their GNAC victory over the Falcons.
"Just when you think you you have had your favorite match, they just get better and better that was such a great match to be a part, so really proud of these girls that it was, there was no superstar tonight, we had like five superstars out there, Kim, 19 kills tonight, she was just about unstoppable tonight out there it was just fun to see and Em, maybe she only had 8 kills, but that last kill that was huge," said Brian Scott, Head Coach - Nanook Volleyball.
"I mean, those 19 kills, I have to give it to my backline too, without them putting up so many balls, I mean holy cow, the digs that we had, 70 digs tonight. I'm just, I can't, it can't be possible for me to do anything without them so it felt awesome to be working together with the back row that we have on this team, it's awesome and Cate's sets were just there tonight. And it was awesome, it felt awesome," said Wong.
