After a rough start to the first set, Lockview rallied back for a 25-20 victory and never looked back.

In the second set, the Dragons went on an 11-0 run to start, before Halifax West managed to get their first points of the game.

They would close in, but Lockview was too much picking up the 25-14 win.

Lockview continued to be the better of the two teams, earning a second straight 25-14 win in set three for the match win over the Warriors.

The Dragons now advance to the Metro semi-final action against JL Isley on the road. That game is set for Nov. 15 at 6 p.m.
