BU volleyball teams split on road

The Brandon University Bobcats women’s volleyball team got off to a slow start in Winnipeg on Wednesday, but it rebounded in time to beat the host Wesmen 3-1 (26-24, 22-25, 25-23, 25-18) in Canada West conference action.

Brandon showed why it is ranked second in the country in the opening set as it overcame a 20-8 deficit to take the set. Second-year setter Mary Thomson came on midway through the set for Kellie Baker and played the rest of the way for the Bobcats (13-4). Thomson finished with 37 assists, six kills and a block.

Vaovai Aiono paced the Bobcat attack with 17 kills, while Victoria Dakin and Shanlee McLennan both had nine. Lexi Loewen chipped in with eight kills and was involved in nine blocks, while Meaghan Robertson added three stuff blocks for the Bobcats.

Carleen Kruschel replied with 14 kills for Winnipeg (6-11), with Hailey Buhler adding 13. Shoal Lake’s Natasha Rupa finished with 39 assists, two aces, a block and a kill.

Meanwhile, the BU men’s volleyball team dropped its fifth straight match and dropped to 0-9 on the road as it was swept 3-0 (25-17, 25-23, 25-22) by the host Winnipeg Wesmen (8-9). Sebastien Steigmeier led the seventh-ranked Bobcats (7-10) with 10 kills, while Dan Boutwell added seven kills and four blocks. Matthew Schriemer led Winnipeg with 12 kills, with Tom Douglas-Powell adding 11.

Brandon will host Winnipeg’s volleyball teams on Friday at the Healthy Living Centre. The women’s match starts at 6 p.m., followed by the men at 7:45 p.m.
