Canada’s first match at the FIVB Grand Prix in 11 years didn’t end the way the national women’s volleyball team had hoped.
Dauphin’s Tabi Love started the first three sets and recorded five kills and a block as Canada fell 3-1 (25-21, 25-18, 25-27, 25-16) to the host Peruvian side. Brandon’s Lisa Barclay came off the bench in the first, third and fourth sets and had a pair of kills.
Kyla Richey paced the Canadians with nine kills and a block, while Lucille Charuk had seven kills and five blocks. Angela Leyva had 15 kills for Peru.
Canada returns to the court today to take on Poland (1-0) and again on Sunday to play Belgium (0-1).
