Brandon Sun - ONLINE EDITION

Bobcats advance to final four

Roy Ching had 13 kills and six digs to lead the Brandon University Bobcats to a 3-0 (25-21, 25-23, 25-23) victory of the Saskatchewan Huskies Saturday night in Saskatoon and a 2-0 sweep in their best-of-three Canada West men’s volleyball quarter-final.

It was a tight match all the way through, but momentum shifted in the second set. The eighth-ranked Bobcats trailed 19-15 and were poised to let the sixth-ranked Huskies tie the match, but the Bobcats dug deep, made the deficit disappear and prevailed.

"It was just a situation where we stayed patient and stayed positive," said Brandon head coach Grant Wilson. "We got down and we just kept believing we could win the next point. In the end, we did and it worked out."

Sam Tuivai finished the match with 11 kills and two blocks. Dan Boutwell chipped in with nine kills and two blocks.

Brandon advances to the Canada West final four — which includes the top-ranked Alberta Golden Bears, the third-ranked Trinity Western Spartans and the seventh-ranked UBC Thunderbirds — in Edmonton next weekend. The top three teams will advance to nationals in Quebec City from March 1-3.
