It was one of the longer days of the Canada Summer Games for the NWT athletes.

Golf kicked things off, as per usual. No real change for the NWT golfers as they head into the final day at the bottom of the pack.

With nine goals against in its opening three games, including a tie in regulation, these Games mars the best NWT Soccer performance at this level for half a century.

The Women’s Volleyball Team played two matches. The first was a quick, but well-fought, sweep by Team Quebec. The second saw the girls actually win a set over Prince Edward Island. That match would end up being 3-1 (25-15, 25-23, 17-25, 25-16) for PEI.

The Men’s Volleyball Team had just the one match. They also were able to win a set over PEI; however, in a mirrored image with the girls, the boys also fell 3-1 (25-14, 21-25, 25-18, 25-15).
