Brandon sweeps Heat, face Huskies in playoff opener

The Brandon Bobcats are heading into the Canada West men’s volleyball playoffs on a winning note.

Brandon completed a sweep of the UBC-Okanagan Heat (2-20) in Kelowna, B.C., on Saturday night to finish sixth in the league with a 13-9 record.

On Saturday, Roy Ching led Brandon with 19 kills and three blocks in its 3-1 (25-16, 22-25, 28-26, 25-20) victory. Dan Boutwell added 14 kills and three blocks, while Brendan White had 11 kills and eight blocks.

White had 14 kills and seven blocks late Friday night as the Bobcats beat the Heat 3-2 (25-20, 22-25, 25-18, 22-25, 15-13).

Brandon was without conference kills leader Sam Tuivai on the weekend. They moved fifth-year libero Scott Neufeld to left side and gave rookie Jeremy Davies his first starts at libero.

The Bobcats will visit the Saskatchewan Huskies (15-7) in Saskatoon for the first round of best-of-three playoffs this Friday (8 p.m.), Saturday (8 p.m.) and possibly Sunday (7 p.m.).

Meanwhile, the Bobcats women’s volleyball team (8-14) will miss the playoffs and ended their season with a tough 3-2 (25-20, 21-25, 22-25, 27-25, 15-9) loss to the host Heat (15-7) Saturday. They did, however, set a new team record for 27 total blocks in a match. Brianna Walsh led the charge as she involved in 13, followed by Lexi Loewen with 12 and Meaghan Robertson with nine. Loewen added 12 kills and Dakin had 10.

The Bobcats’ post-season hopes were dashed late Friday when Calgary swept Regina.
