Bobcat volleyball squads in playoffs

Both Brandon University Bobcat volleyball teams will be playing in the Canada West playoffs, but the women are going in on a roll while the men backed into the post-season.

The Bobcats women’s volleyball team clinched second place in the Canada West standings with a 3-0 (25-17, 25-16, 30-28) sweep of the host Calgary Dinos on Saturday, their third straight victory and fifth in six matches.

Brandon (17-5), ranked second in the country, was led by Vaovai Aiono, who had 11 kills and six blocks, while Meaghan Robertson added 10 kills and six blocks. Victoria Dakin and Shanlee McLennan both had 10 kills.

Ali Woolley led Calgary (5-17) with 11 kills, while Brandonite Angelica Quiring had three kills and four blocks.

The Bobcats will host the UBC Okanagan Heat (12-9) in a best-of-three playoff series on Thursday, Friday and, if necessary, Saturday at the Healthy Living Centre. All matches start at 7 p.m.

Meanwhile, the ninth-ranked BU men’s volleyball team needed to win one set in Calgary on Saturday to clinch a playoff spot, but were swept 3-0 (25-21, 25-22, 25-20) by the host Dinos. However, the Saskatchewan Huskies beat the Mount Royal Cougars later in the evening to hand Brandon the seventh and final playoff position.

Sebastien Steigmeier had 19 kills for Brandon (10-12), while Sam Tuivai added 13. Greg Mann had 14 kills for the Dinos (11-11).

The Bobcats will travel to Vancouver to face the fourth-ranked UBC Thunderbirds (15-7) in the best-of-three playoff series on Thursday, Friday and, if necessary, Saturday.
