Bobcat left side Sam Tuivai had 15 kills in Brandon’s 3-0 sweep of the Regina Cougars Thursday.

The Brandon University Bobcats continued to try out different lineups at the Mount Royal University Cougars’ men’s volleyball tournament in Calgary, and it resulted in a split of their games on Thursday.

Sam Tuivai led Brandon with 15 kills and six digs as the Bobcats disposed of the Regina Cougars 3-0 (25-19, 25-21, 25-15). D.J. McCharles added 12 kills and three blocks, while Brendan White was involved in five blocks.

The Bobcats then fell 3-0 (25-22, 25-15, 26-24) to the host Mount Royal Cougars last night. McCharles had nine kills and two digs. Tuivai added seven kills and five digs.

Brandon finished the Mount Royal contest with regular starting setter Garrett Popplestone and libero Scott Neufeld playing left side, while giving David Stasica and Jeremy Davies time at setter and libero, respectively.

"We’re just trying to rest some guys. Some guys are nursing some injuries and with the departure of Rob (McLean) and Randy (Preval), we’re trying to figure out some different roles for different guys when certain things are needed," BU head coach Grant Wilson said. "Overall we’re pretty pleased with how the weekend has been."

Brandon, which sits in third place in Canada West with a 9-3 record, is now 2-1 in the tournament and wraps up the round-robin affair today against the Dalhousie Tigers.
