The Canadian men’s volleyball team dropped into second place in the FIVB World League’s Pool C standings on Sunday after falling 3-1 (33-31, 25-12, 21-25, 25-23) to the host Belgians in Antwerp.
Brandonite Dustin Schneider started all four sets at setter for Canada (3-1), while Rivers’ Toon Van Lankvelt appeared in the third set. Neither recorded any stats. Gord Perrin led Canada with 13 kills. Bram Van Den Dries had 24 for Belgium (3-1), which is three points up on Canada in the standings.
Canada will try to gain a measure of revenge in Vancouver this weekend as it hosts the Belgians on Friday and Saturday.
Meanwhile, former Brandon University Bobcat Paul Sanderson had two kills, two blocks and an ace for Australia as it won its first-ever World League match 3-2 (24-26, 25-22, 24-26, 25-20, 15-12) over Finland on Saturday in Canberra.
The Australians, who are 1-3 in Pool C, then fell in five sets on Sunday. Sanderson did not play in that match against Finland (1-3).
