Brandon struggles against UBC

The Brandon University Bobcats men’s volleyball team continued it road woes on the weekend in Vancouver.

The seventh-ranked Bobcats stayed winless on the road Saturday night, dropping their eighth straight Canada West match away from the Healthy Living Centre, when they were swept 3-0 (28-26, 25-22, 25-17) by the UBC Thunderbirds. Brandon fell to 7-9 and into a three-way tie for the seventh and final playoff spot in the conference, with six matches remaining.

Sam Tuivai led the Bobcats on Saturday with 16 kills and three aces, while Sebastien Steigmeier added nine kills.

Late Friday night, Steigmeier had 15 kills and Tuivai added 12 as the Bobcats fell 3-1 (21-25, 25-15, 25-28, 25-22) to the Thunderbirds (11-5).

Meanwhile, the BU women’s volleyball team didn’t make out much better on Saturday as they fell 3-0 (25-17, 25-13, 25-16) to the top-ranked Thunderbirds (15-1).

Vaiovai Aiono had eight kills for the second-ranked Bobcats (12-4), who handed UBC its first loss of the season on Friday night. Brandonite Lisa Barclay had 13 kills for UBC on Saturday.

Both volleyball teams are back on the court on Wednesday when they visit the Winnipeg Wesmen.
