Brandon University Bobcats alumnus Paul Sanderson and the Australian men’s volleyball team played for a chance to advance to the FIVB World League’s final six early this morning in Sydney, Australia.
Sanderson started all three sets and recorded three kills and an ace as the Australians swept the Netherlands 3-0 (25-23, 25-12, 27-25) in the Group 2 final four semifinals. Edgar Thomas led Australia with 23 kills, two aces and a block.
Australia met France, which swept Belgium in the other semifinal, for the right to join Russia, Brazil, Iran, the United States and the host Italians in the championship round.
