Bobcats bracing for final playoff push

All season long, players on the Brandon University Bobcats men’s volleyball team felt if they played their best at the end of the season then they could make the Canada West playoffs and potentially make a run to another conference championship or the school’s first national title.

This weekend is the Bobcats’ last chance to keep that dream alive. Brandon (9-11), ranked ninth in the country, is one of six teams that are within one win of each other heading into the final weekend of the regular season and battling for the final three playoff spots. The Bobcats visit Calgary (10-10) today and tomorrow.

The match won’t be easy as the Dinos are also battling for their playoff lives and have been tough to beat at home.

Brandon may also be without left side Brendan White and right side/setter Roy Ching. Both will be game-time decisions with ankle injuries. White rolled his left ankle in a match last week against the Trinity Western Spartans while Ching injured his right ankle when he landed on Sam Tuivai’s foot during Wednesday’s practice.

In women’s volleyball, the second-ranked Bobcats (15-5) will try to lock up second place in the conference when they visit the Dinos (5-15), who have been eliminated from playoff contention, tonight and tomorrow in Calgary.
