Vernon scores 31 in Canada’s loss to Poland

URMIA, Iran, June 16, 2019 - Canada's Sharone Vernon became the first player this season to break the 30+ points barrier in a single FIVB Volleyball Nations League match, when he scored 31 in his team's 3-1 (25-20, 25-27, 25-20, 28-26) defeat to Poland Sunday in Urmia.

The 20-year-opposite scored 28 points from attack, had 2 blocks and served one ace today against Poland. He is the only player in the VNL on a losing side to have scored 30+.

Vernon is the sixth player to join the list, after the top five from last season. The all-time VNL scoring record in a single match remains 37 points by China's Jiang Chuan from last year's match against France.

Dawid Konarski and Aleksander Sliwka were the top Polish scorers with 21 and 20 points, respectively.
